Twice Per Week Zoom Gatherings:  Two times per week through the month of March (we will assess April needs later this month) the RSEN will host a zoom platform for Network members to discuss the transition of our schools into this new ‘virtual’ period, and other issues/topics that involve our shared job tasks.  RSEN zoom gatherings will occur on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1-2PM. 

RSENetwork Shared Resources:  The RSEN has created a shared google file that has information on closings, people in the Network are sharing/posting their online programs and curriculum, listing of online support and curriculum, etc.  All Network members have access to this exclusive resource.
