Does requesting a workshop guarantee that I will be enrolled?
All requests are reviewed by administration for approval. If a workshop has enough interest, the Northern Valley Curriculum Center will offer as many sections as possible. We do our best to accommodate the requests that we receive, however at times, constraints of space, facilitator availability, and district allocations may prevail.
How do I find out if I will be attending the workshops I requested?
Workshop registrations are sent to every superintendent's office in September. Additionally, workshop confirmations are emailed to attendees in September. Three weeks in advance of the workshop, the Northern Valley Curriculum Center will also send a Google Calendar invite with details including location, parking, etc. Please be sure to RSVP to this Calendar invite.
