Audience: Educators in need of lead evaluator refresher

Dates: 8/1/2018

The course has been created with the assumption your administrative team will work collaboratively as you progress through the modules. You can expect to receive feedback on your progress throughout the course, as appropriate, from one of the three authors of this training.

This online course is meant for those seeking re-certification only. Those who are in need of initial lead evaluator training are required to take the two day, in-person training offered in both the summer and the fall.

Once you register for this course, you will receive a unique username and password to access the online course within 3-5 days.
