Monday, January 10, 2022
The registration period has closed for this event.

Registration open through 1/3/2022 5:00 PM Mountain Time (US & Canada)

PLEASE NOTE: If you are an Educational Assistant, and you DO NOT have a Bachelors in either Early Childhood, Elementary or Special Education, DO NOT REGISTER FOR THIS TRAINING.

These Application Training days meet on Monday, January 10th, March 7th, April 11th and May 23rd from 12:30-3:30. You must register before December 10th to participate. A license will be issued to you after this date, and you will have one year to complete the online units. Completion of LETRS-EC requires the completion of the application training days and the online units.

To participate in this cohort, you must complete the online units prior to your scheduled application training days as follows:

Unit 1- must be completed before January 10th
Unit 2- must be completed before March 7th
Unit 3- must be completed before April 18th
Unit 4- must be completed before May 23rd

Successful completion of the LETRS-Early Childhood training online modules requires a post-test score of 80% or higher. For those teachers or administrators who would like to become facilitators of this training, a score of 90% or higher is required to access Facilitator Training. We are happy to offer a retest opportunity for persons who scored below 80%. Please contact hmeyer@crecnm.org

There is also a possibility that a score of 80% or higher on the post-test may qualify licensed teachers to add a reading endorsement on an early childhood teaching license in the future. This will require a rule change, so may take some time. When this is accomplished, PED will provide the process to submit for the endorsement.

LETRS-EC is also approved professional development for educational assistants who hold a bachelor’s degree in elementary, early childhood, or special education. If you are an EA and you DO NOT meet this qualification, DO NOT REGISTER FOR THIS TRAINING.
