GSNA PEP Training Update

PEP - What is it?
PEP stands for "Professional Enrichment Program. "PEP" Training in each GSNA District for school level staff, on topics needed for successful SN programs and to meet new USDA Professional Standards requirements. Effective July 1, 2015, USDA requires 10 hours of training in defined areas EACH year for school nutrition Managers and 6 hours for other employees as well as 12 Hours for Directors and Coordinators.

Why PEP?
To assist school systems in providing effective training that is approved for USDA Professional Development Requirements and for the SNA Certificate in School Nutrition.

How?
Each of the ten GSNA Districts conducts a one day workshop, for approximately 5 - 6 hours, setting up the location, specific program topics and presenters, lunch, registration and attendance tracking information. Four one hour presentations will be taught during this time, and Districts may offer additional training or other activity if they wish. GSNA will assist District officers with securing presenters if needed. Any expense for Trainers (travel, for example) will be paid by the District. Presenters may be current SN staff, SN Industry partners, the Food Service Management Institute, or retired SN Staff.
