How it Works

A flyer will be shared with information about the upcoming book study opportunities. Participants wishing to register will sign up via a Google Form. Each participant is responsible for purchasing their own copy of the book for the course. Once the book study is completed, it is the participant’s responsibility to pursue professional development/continuing education points with their district of employment. Participants wishing to receive WSU college credit  must complete the required paperwork and pay for the cost of the college credit.
