  “We are very honored to receive this award from the SREB,” says Ronald Matter, superintendent of Penta Career Center.  “Over the years, our staff has worked collaboratively to transform our professional development opportunities.  We feel this approach has led to staff ownership of their professional development and an increase in students’ ownership of their learning.”
