OBTAINING CREDIT FOR CLASSES
 
You may take a class or classes offered for graduate credit from an accredited college or university.  You will have to pay for these credits, according to the fee charged by the university or college.  You may take the credits in Gillette, or some place else, and credits acquired in this manner will apply toward horizontal movement on the salary schedule (i.e. for every fifteen credits you may move one horizontal column).  Each time you move one column, you will earn additional pay that applies from that time onward.
 
You may take a class or classes for CCSD credit.  Taking a class only for CCSD credit will not cost you anything and it will apply toward recertifying (getting your next certificate); but you can use only six of these credits for any particular lane change.  All of the credits you earn to get your next teaching license can be CCSD, or all of them can be graduate credit, or some combination of the two.
 
In Campbell County we also have another way for you to earn credit.  You may take what are called "Action Labs".  Most action labs are three hours and meet one time.  Five action labs equal one CCSD credit.  These also cost you nothing, because eventually the action lab credits become CCSD credits.  Action lab credits can, however, also be taken for University of Wyoming graduate credit at a rate of $50 per credit.  If you opt to take a class for University of Wyoming credit, please make sure you bring your checkbook with you to the first class to register and pay for the fees.  The university has a new policy now that all class registrations must be sent to them right after the first class.  If you know you will miss the first class session, please plan on taking the class at another time.
 
For example, to move from the BA column to a BA+15 column, you could only use six CCSD credits.  The remaining nine credits would have to be graduate classes.  All credits earned as CCSD credit are automatically also earned as PTSB.
 
Finally, you can be reimbursed by CCSD for one half of the cost of graduate level classes you take, up to $45 per credit hour.  For example, if you take a three credit class and each credit costs $50, the class would cost you $150.  The school district will reimburse you $75.  In order to get this reimbursement, however, you must fill out a reimbursement form (these can be picked up at your school or at SD) before class starts.  Then after you receive your grade turn it in with your proof of payment to the Human Resources Department.

Google Sites 

November 8 - 4:15 - 7:15
Location - LLC Apple Lab

Instructors: Joe Back

In today's classroom culture, technology is becoming more and more prevalent. Google offers a suite of tools to help us jump into this technological paradigm. One tool is Google Sites. Have you ever wanted to create a website? Perhaps you've wondered how you can use a website as a learning tool. Or, maybe you're tired of having your students give basic presentations from a slideshow. Step up your slideshow game with a new format! Utilize a website to conquer a self-driven unite of learning! In this class I will help you understand not only how to utilize Google sites, but also how to embed various objects (such as a spreadsheet, document, map, etc). We'll also explore how students can drive their own understanding through the discovery of different ideas and then incorporate them all into one place...their own academically driven website. This class is for people working with all grade levels and class types. It is able to be taken by people of all skill levels; however, those more knowledgeable in tech may be able to outpace the instruction.

Practical & Complementary Interventions for Autism, Asperger's, Sensory & ADHD in Children & Adolescents

September 24 & October 22:  4-7pm (each night)         

Location - Maple Room (Lakeway Learning Center)

Instructor: Shelby Gill

 

Recent research shows that many children and teens with Autism, SPD, and ADHD do not receive adequate therapeutic intervention.  These diagnoses are now being recognized as part of a larger complex with overlapping symptoms and body-wide impairments affecting several organ systems, not just the brain.  The risks for delinquency, substance abuse, social skills deficits, health problems, obsessions, compulsions, sensory processing deficits, and profound academic problems are high for most of these children and teens.  This brand new, practical seminar explores clinical applications from several directions for maximum impact on the child, teen, and family.  You will find truly CREATIVE and USER-FRIENDLY STRATEGIES that REALLY WORK for any involved professional or concerned family member.
