Professional Development Opportunities

MCESC offers a variety of Professional Development opportunities for Educators in the region.

In order to receive a certificate of attendance, in house workshop participants must register through the MCESC PDExpress online portal. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

By clicking on one of the categories below, you will be taken to MCESC PDExpress and there you will find further instructions on how to obtain a user ID and password (under the "Guest" column) if you are not an MCESC employee.

Once you have done that, you will be given a list of workshops that are available and you will be able to click on the name of the workshop to register.

Please use ONLY the "list" view (not the calendar view) when looking for workshops. You may also have to toggle to another page to see more workshops. That is the blue arrow located at the bottom of each list.

If you have registered for a workshop and are a "No show" or have not canceled one week in advance, your district will be billed. We close workshops one week before an event to prepare materials and order catering if it is included.
