NOTICE: All workshops sponsored by WDMESC and most CIV registration will continue to be ONLINE. All workshop descriptions are available at http://wilbur.k12.ar.us . Updates about cancellations, room changes and any new workshops will be available ONLINE. Please check for updates before attending.
Notice to Educators outside our co-op area: The schools in the WDMESC area support our professional development activities through their school budgets. Therefore, we must give priority to teachers from our area and restrict registrations outside our area on a "space available" basis only. If a workshop is full, your registration may be cancelled to allow a teacher from the co-op area to attend.
NO REGISTRATIONS WILL BE TAKEN OVER THE PHONE!
All registrations must be done ONLINE.
All registration fees must be received before you will be registered for a workshop. A check, money order or purchase order should be received no less than 5 days prior to workshop. Make checks/MOs/POs payable to WDMESC and include participant’s name and school district, date and title of workshop. Send one check or purchase order for each workshop. Registration is not complete until the appropriate fee has been received. No credit will be given for workshop until payment is received.
Workshop registration deadline is two weeks prior to workshop date. Workshops which do not meet the minimum number required will be cancelled.
CANCELLATION OF WORKSHOPS:
If a workshop does not make due to low registration, the session will be cancelled and the registered participants will be notified by E-MAIL. Cancellations will also be posted on our website. Those participants will have additional time to register for other workshops which still have open slots.
Participants may cancel their registrations ONLINE up to 5 days prior to scheduled workshop. After that, participants will have to contact the Co-op to be taken out of the workshop. Administrators will be notified of participants registering and not attending workshops. No refunds of personal payment will be given.
CONFIRMATION OF REGISTRATION:
When you register ONLINE you will automatically receive an email stating the workshop(s) for which you registered. You may also check your shoebox to view registrations.
60 hours of staff development is required for each certified staff member employed within a district. Of these 60 hours, a minimum of 6 hours must be “integrated technology”** staff development. The building administration for each campus must make approval of staff development hours. In order to meet teacher certification requirements, staff development must meet the following 3 guidelines:
- Tied to the district ACSIP Plan
- Tied to the individual teacher professional growth plan
- Tied to direct student achievement for content area(s) currently teaching
**Integrated Technology Staff Development – 6 hours of staff development tied to technology that directly impacts student achievement, student curriculum and activities. For example: A workshop which is “point and click” learning to use Word would not be integrated staff development. A Word workshop, which teaches the software through integrated student activities, would be considered integrated staff development.
VERIFICATION OF ATTENDANCE:
After completion of workshop, your ONLINE transcript with credit hours will be available. To print your individual transcript you must log into your shoebox. A copy of all staff development hours will be sent to each district at the end of the summer.
If a workshop states that you must register with another agency (ADE, Easter Seals, etc.) you only have to register with specified agency. You do not have to register online. The agency you registered with will contact WDMESC with names of participants. If your name is not on the list received from agency, you will not receive credit.
