Documenting and Communicating Success

All grantees must send a team to the end of the year workshop, Documenting and
Communicating Success. There will be four optional professional development
events. Three day-long workshops will be provided on each approach in a central
location. Districts should send staff members who are engaged in implementing
plans on that approach. A summer institute for sexual health educators will be
offered for health or PE teachers who will be implementing sexual health education
in your district.
