|SUBJECT:||Workshop on Downloading/Printing Superintendent's Memos|
In an effort to respond to the needs of the school divisions, the Department of Education will conduct five-hour workshops on downloading and printing Superintendent's Memos from Virginia's PEN. The first workshop, which will serve as a "prototype" for all of the others, will be held on March 5, 1996, from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm. Attached is a course outline to help you determine if such a class would be helpful to your staff. For this first "test" class, attendance will be limited to 20 participants on a "first come, first serve" basis. When the first class is completed, additional classes will be scheduled to accommodate at least one person from each school division. Completion of the attached form by February 19, 1996 will enable us to begin planning for the workshops. Unfortunately, the Department will not be able to cover expenses for the person you nominate. Please contact Richard Schley, (firstname.lastname@example.org or 804/371-6882) for any questions. WCBJr/fc Attachments TRAINING OUTLINE FOR DOWNLOADING AND PRINTING SUPERINTENDENT'S MEMOS 1.
