On July 21, 2022, OnRamps will bring together school administrators, counselors, and instructional support personnel for the Summer Symposium. The day-long, professional development event will offer a comprehensive overview of OnRamps implementation for the 2022-2023 academic year—from student orientation and instructor induction to college credit eligibility and earned outcomes, plus everything in between. This event, specially designed for new district partners and any individuals who are new to their roles with us, will be key to navigating the year ahead and leveraging a growing community of peers and supports.  Browse the below agenda and register today.
