    We will be holding our annual STW Training on July 14 & 15, 2019 at the Country Inn & Suites in State College. The cost per person for the training is $50. The fee includes lodging (double room), food and all materials. If you want a single room, there is an additional $50 fee. We are looking for people who are interested in attending. We max registration at 24. All newly recognized and re-designated schools get the first choice to fill slots. You can send up to 2 members from your schools.

    It is important that the administrators are trained so you can understand what all goes on with recognitions and re-designations. I also suggest a member from you STW team from your school.

    Everyone who goes through the training is then eligible to screen applications and/or attend STW site visits in upcoming years.

    Please complete registration information for each member from your school who is interested in attending. We will not be asking for payment until after July 1, 2019 since this all goes into the 2019-20 budget.

    Thanks so much for your interest in being a part of the STW process.
