Earn Graduate-Level Professional Development Semester Units/Credits For Your Completion of Orton Gillingham Training or Workshops by OG Instruction
Please Note: You must wait until you have completed the Orton Gillingham Workshop/Training and have received your Certificate of Completion before you register!
Two Simple Steps:
Step 1 – GET TO KNOW THE POLICIES OF YOUR SCHOOL DISTRICT
Get to know the policies of your school district regarding graduate-level professional growth courses, due dates, etc.:
Some districts require prior approval and some don’t. Districts vary in policy regarding whether or not they require official transcripts, and districts have different turn-in dates for salary advancement.
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 official transcripts. Please contact your personnel department for information.
Please note: It typically takes 6 – 8 weeks to obtain a transcript from the Registrar, so please plan to register for credit with Courses4Teachers Inc. with this time frame in mind.
What information to provide your district should you need prior approval:
Generally, districts ask for the name of the university, the course title, and course number. If additional information is requested, you may add that all our University of the Pacific courses are Graduate-Level, Professional Development courses, designed as professional growth for teachers.
