A very simple registration process to follow:

You may earn 1 graduate-level units/credits for your attendance and participation in any of the 6 California Kindergarten Conference Summer Series workshops/webinars of your choice.
Or, better yet:
Participate in all 12 workshops and earn 2 graduate-level professional development semester units/credits!

Note: These credits are designed for salary advancement and to renew credentials. These units/credits are not designed towards attainment of an advanced degree with University of the Pacific.

The cost is only $70 for each graduate-level professional development semester unit/credit (regularly $99 per unit)!

To be awarded these units/credits, you will need to do the following:

  1. YOU MUST OBTAIN A CERTIFICATE OF ATTENDANCE/PARTICIPATION IN 6 or 12 WORKSHOPS FROM CKA ADMINISTRATION. YOU MUST TURN IN THIS CERTIFICATE WITH YOUR REGISTRATION.
  2. Select a course number/title from the list below. If you participated in all 12 workshops, select two course titles! No single title will match the workshops you attended. Therefore, select a title(s) you would like to see on your transcript.
  3. To register use this link Registration Form (Please disregard the $99 fee per unit. We will be crossing off the $99 before sending it to the University). Fill out the form (Your tuition submitted will be $70) and attach the CKA Completion Certificate.
  4. Each course title applies for credit for taking six workshops. Therefore, if you want credit for all 12 workshops you must provide us with two separate registrations, each with a different course number/title.  Each course registration will be processed separately, each for $99.
  5. Email the registration(s) to Courses4Teachers@Courses4Teachers.net.
    PLEASE PUT IN THE SUBJECT LINE ON THE REGISTRATION FORM: “CKA Workshop Series”

Note: It is your responsibility to know your own district’s policies regarding dates you must submit grade reports for salary advancement and regarding their policy in accepting grade reports versus formal transcripts. Please contact your personnel department for information.
