Is there any professional development available to someone who is using Read 180 for the first time?

I need training and my school doesn't have an expert who is capable of doing this.

    Yes, there are several training opportunities: The READ 180 National Summer Institute is a great place to start. You can find information about it at http://www.cvent.com/events/22nd-annual-model-schools-conference/event-summary-6616a1a49681447aa6508967e90f3f61.aspx?RefID=NSI&ct=a50d1166-13eb-4096-a2d1-534beb21d6e7&cpc=DRN9PW5HLFX. If your school is purchasing READ 180 this year, training will be offered as part of the purchase at your school. Check with your administrator when that training will be offered. Your local READ 180 account executive can help you find training in your area. You can ask your administrator to set this up for you or you can contact your account executive yourself. You can find out who that person is at http://teacher.scholastic.com/products/ae_contact_se.asp#. Dee Ask Dee at the READ 180 Community
