We are currently seeking host sites for:

Hosting WIDA professional learning is an opportunity for you to showcase your school while providing leadership within the international school community. Host school teachers do not have to pay for flights or hotel, and can attend at a significantly discounted rate. In addition, WIDA reimburses host schools for all food and beverage costs.
