Please postmark payment by October 15, 2023. All payment is due at check-­in.

Questions about sessions

Question: Which sessions "count" for ethics?
Answer: We don't get to be the judge of that for you. But here are some guidelines:
NASP: The session must be about ethical practice and/or the legal regulation of school psychology
NC Psych Board: To be credited as fulfillment of this requirement, the word "ethics" or a derivative of the word "ethics" must be in the title of the program, and the program must include such content.

Question: Which sessions "count" for equity, diversity, inclusion, and social justice (EDI) ?
Answer: We don't get to be the judge of that for you. But here are some guidelines:
Key topics for this area may include social justice; implicit bias; dealing with over/under representation of different cultural, racial, immigration status, sexual orientation, and gender identity in school practices; policies to mitigate bias; microaggressions; and culturally responsive assessment to name a few.

Question: Which sessions "count" for Digital Learning?
Answer: We don't get to be the judge of that. Your PSU/School does. But here are some guidelines from DPI - 
Professional learning that is aligned with a Digital Learning Competency Focus Areas may be considered eligible for educators to earn a CEU in this area. (We're big fans of the coaching competencies like Change Agent and Data-Driven Decision Maker)
