Professional Learning Opportunities for Every Educator

About Our Services

The Professional Development Department offers regular professional learning opportunities for all educators in any district on a wide variety of topics. Additionally, ESCLEW staff can provide customized professional development and consultation for both districts and individual schools. These learning opportunities can be scheduled around district PD days, late starts, teacher meetings, grade level team gatherings or other requested configurations. These customized services are free for our PD member districts (Maumee, Perrysburg, Rossford, Springfield, Sylvania, and Washington Local) and may be purchased by another district for a fee. Our consultant fees for customized professional development for non-member districts can be viewed by clicking here: ESCLEW On-Site Consultant Fees for Non-Member Districts. If you would like to request a professional development for your district or building, please fill out this form: PD Request Form.

The ESCLEW also has a Conference Center containing multiple conference rooms, which can be signed-out for a fee by any district wishing to host their own professional learning opportunities. These rooms come in a range of sizes, accommodating anywhere from 10 to 170 attendees. For more information, please click here: ESCLEW Conference Rooms & Fees. If you would like to sign-out a conference room, please fill out this form: Conference Room Request Form.


Please feel free to call the professional development voice line at 419-724-8570 if you would like to discuss professional development for your school/district, have questions about a particular workshop or are interested in using our Conference Center. Please allow adequate time and planning for customized requests.

We look forward to seeing you throughout the upcoming year!
