FAPE Launches Partners in Education Academy
As state travel freezes created a postponement of the annual FAPE conference, training requests from members began to pour in. The FAPE Board's solution for continuing training in the face of local district financial hardships is the building of the Partners in Education Academy which will deliver training in a variety of ways. The academy will provide volunteer/parent/partnership training, in this first delivery phase, via the Florida Education Channel. The annual statewide conference will continue when travel restrictions are lifted.
