Reminder! The Self Review Form is due to NYSED on November 15, 2018.
Snow is just around the corner and the RAEN would like to remind you about winter safety and being sensible about workshops.
Workshops and meetings that we cancel due to anticipated bad weather will be posted on this website. If we have to cancel a workshop the evening before the training or early that morning, we'll be using the email address that you have provided with your registration. Many teachers who register for our trainings provide a "work" email address. That's fine, but be aware that if it's a work contact and your office is closed, you won't get notice from us. We cannot be responsible for that situation, or for any non-deliverable emails.
It's also well known that it can be a dry sunny day in one part of our region and a howling blizzard twenty minutes away. If travel where you live is unsafe, please be wise and stay home!
