Summer Learning Academy


2017 Summer Learning Academy (SLA) for All LSR7 Staff

The Instructional Technology (ITS) department is pleased to offer several technology-focused professional growth opportunities for certified and classified staff. To address the feedback received in the Team Lee’s Summit staff survey, the sessions offered will aid employees in becoming more proficient with the use of district provided technology resources. 


Most of the sessions will be held at the Stansberry Leadership Center (SLC). When you enter SLC, the screen behind the receptionist will give the room assignment. 

Attendance is voluntary. Twelve-month employees need to make arrangements with their supervisor to attend during the workday. Sessions are provided at no cost to employees.
