Description:
This course takes place entirely online and runs for four consecutive weeks, from 7/16/2018 to 8/12/2018. Weekly participation is required, though participants may, during a given week, log in whenever they wish. A kick-off Webinar will take place during the first week of the course on Thursday, 7/12/2018 at 4:00 pm.

This course will introduce participants to a wide variety of strategies for both program and classroom that move students towards their career goals in the most efficient way possible. Participants will become familiar with a variety of strategies and by the end of the training, will have completed a plan for moving forward with adopting one or two strategies within their agency.

The audience for this training is agency teams of at least one administrator and one instructional leader. An assumption behind this team approach is that that program changes have to be implemented and led by administrators, but cannot be successful without the understanding and support from teachers. Agencies must, therefore, apply as a team of at least two members, but may include up to four members.

Participants who complete this course will receive a certificate of participation (14 hours); they are also eligible to apply to CSUS for 1.4 Continuing Education Units (CEUs) if they wish.
