CDC Webinar: Zika Virus Response Planning: What School Administrators Need to Know

PTA leaders, this is an interesting learning experience that we’d like to share with you.

Webinar from the CDC: Zika Virus Response Planning: What School Administrators Need to Know

Friday, August 19th, 2016, 1:30-2:30 PM EST

Please join us on Friday, August 19 from 1:30 – 2:30 PM EST to hear a special presentation from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Department of Education titled “Zika Virus Response Planning: What School Administrators Need to Know”.

As the school year begins, many of you may have questions on CDC’s guidance “Zika Virus Response Planning: Interim Guidance for District and School Administrators in the Continental United States and Hawaii”, and how schools can prepare for potential cases of Zika. We are excited to have Dr. Eric Dziuban, Chief Medical Officer in the Division of Human Development and Disability at CDC and lead for the Children’s Health Team of the CDC Zika Virus Response, provide an overview of the guidance. In addition to the guidance, Dr. Dziuban will also discuss the following topics:
· Zika basics
· Roles and responsibilities of school officials and public health authorities
· Planning for possible Zika transmission in K-12 schools
· School preparations for mosquito-borne transmission of Zika in local areas, and
· Considerations for child care, camp, and higher education settings

District 10 – open positions

On May 21, we announced in an email that several District 10 executive committee positions have come open:

Recently, several members of the District 10 executive committee resigned their positions due to other commitments. In accordance with the District’s Standing Rules, the remaining members of the District 10 board convened a special meeting on May 15 and elected a new District Director, Lisa Martin, to fill the unexpired term.

The next step, in accordance with the standing rules, is for the district director to submit names to the board to elect the remaining officers. We want you to help us find officers that are committed to the mission of PTA and understand the commitment involved.

Read about the positions.

Nominate yourself or others. DEADLINE: June 3, 2016.

If you missed the email, check your junk/spam folder, sign up for the eblast, or email our communications chair to double-check your information.
