The annual one-day workshop fulfilling the requirements for counting and serving identified gifted and talented students being served in secondary content classes by a non-licensed teacher will be held at the education service cooperatives. The compressed interactive video (CIV) workshop is scheduled from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Thursday, August 5, 2010. Please note that this will be the only statewide workshop conducted this summer.

All teachers of mathematics, science, social studies or English formally serving and counting identified gifted students enrolled in a secondary content option must attend the entire workshop for completion of this required training. A certificate of attendance will be provided for documentation of this approved in-service workshop requirement.

Please have teachers requiring this workshop to register through the education service cooperatives or, in the case of Pulaski County districts, please register through the administrator/coordinator of gifted programs in each individual district. The deadline for registration is July 8, 2010. Teachers hired after the registration deadline will be allowed to attend.
