PAIS LISTERVS ALIGN WITH MANY OF OUR CIRCLE OF PEERS GROUPS
PAIS member school administration, staff and faculty in our database, as shared by their school or joined individually, will be be added to a Listserv if their role aligns with one of our groups. These Listservs provide a forum for colleagues in similar roles to share ideas, ask questions, and discuss relevant topics. They will receive email notification when they have been added to a PAIS Listserv and contacts can unsubscribe at any time. CLICK HERE to see the Listservs available to PAIS member schools. Contact Deb Borden with any questions.
