Professional Learning Communities are an invaluable experience to grow professionally and build a sense of community with colleagues. This is a chance to earn CEUs while learning about what interests you and building relationships with other principals. If you'd like MESPA to apply for CEUs for you, the group has to meet for a total of 6 hours throughout the course of the year (for example, 4 times for 1.5 hours each or 6 1-hour sessions). Then, send MESPA a brief outline of what you plan to learn and talk about. When your 6 hours are done, send MESPA an attendance sheet using the template. This is a great way to earn 6 CEUs while learning about a topic that interests you and building a community of support.
