CASE PD Events are hosted regionally through Ag Ed partners throughout the country. Lead Teachers (LTs) are the heartbeat of the CASE curriculum delivery model. LTs are part-time contractors and serve as an extension of the National Council for Agricultural Education (The Council) and CASE. They facilitate instruction of CASE pedagogy and technical skills in coordination with CASE and Host Site Coordinators. There are two different types of PD events: CASE Institutes and BriefCASES. They also communicate with CASE, participants, and our Hosts to organize the PD event. Applications and the Lead Teacher Manual are linked under Lead Teacher Resources.
