On August 4, 2016 North Point Educational Service Center hosted their annual one-day retreat for area school leaders at the Kalahari Resort/Convention Center. The event was attended by approximately 200 superintendents, principals, treasurers, coordinators, supervisors and directors from 27 school districts.
The Retreat marked the thirty-ninth (39th) year that the Center has organized and hosted the in-service. This event kicks-off the new school year. It affords school leaders the opportunity to come together and discuss plans for the upcoming school year and to interact with colleagues in other districts so they can collaborate on common programs and activities.
