Your district, like many others, is likely looking for ways to reduce costs and to ensure that the money it spends to meet students’ needs goes as far as possible. But professional development is important, too, and this year’s ANC in Dallas promises to provide big ideas, big value and big opportunities.
So, why not ask your supervisor to send you to ANC to ensure that you’ll gain valuable ideas and suggestions to bring back to your district? Tracks in financial management and food safety and sanitation, as well as sessions on other key topics, such as First Lady Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move! initiative and USDA commodities, will provide you with cost-effective essential training and knowledge that can also be used back home.
The letter in this blog entry, attached in Word, is a template for a letter you might consider submitting to your supervisor to let him/her know about how important it is that you attend ANC Dallas. As school nutrition professionals work together to provide healthy meal options for all students in these continued difficult economic times and as school meals face scrutiny from those who do not understand the full scope of the school nutrition profession, training and professional development remain as important as ever. Feel free to tailor the information as suggested to your and your district’s own needs.
