CTEC Conference 2020

Due to a number of factors including COVID-19, school and jurisdictional budget restrictions, and jurisdictional PD travel limitations, we have had to make the hard decision to cancel our 2020 CTEC Fall Conference.   It is the goal of the CTEC executive to continue providing our membership with quality and relevant PD opportunities throughout the 2020-2021 school year.

We are currently working on developing presentations for all the Teachers Conventions.  We would especially like to bring presentations to some of the smaller convention associations so that all CTF/CTS teachers have access to subject related PD.  If you have ideas for us, please either contact your area PD Director, or the CTEC President

Note that we will follow all COVID guidelines and restrictions, thus plans are subject to change accordingly.
