Our New Name!

We are excited to announce that the Institute @ CESA #1 has been renamed The Institute for Personalized Learning:  a division of CESA #1. According to Mary Gavigan, Executive Director of CESA #1, the new name is intended to better communicate the work and mission of the Institute while reinforcing its relationship to CESA #1. After five years of service to educators, students, administrators and others throughout the education community, the change in name will reinforce the identity of the Institute without changing its focus or commitment. 

This change will allow the Institute to continue to serve the needs of and collaborate with member school districts while building the capacity for continued growth. Watch for changes in the next several months, including a new interactive website.
