|2013 IASB JOINT ANNUAL CONFERENCE|
CPDU and PDLT Credits Offered at Conference
Certified Illinois teachers who were either registered conference attendees (board members) or registered guests of attendees were able to receive Continuing Professional Development Units (CPDU) for their participation in the 2013 Joint Annual Conference.
This year, 198 teachers took advantage of the offer. An additional 360 school board members used the annual conference to complete their four-hour Professional Development Leadership training requirement and receive an official certificate of completion.
The State Teachers Certification Board has approved IASB as a certified CPDU provider for the annual conference. That means that any certified Illinois teacher who was registered as a conference attendee or a guest may receive 12 CPDU credits for attending the full conference.
There is no cost to board members; however, there is a $50 handling charge for non-board members who qualified for CPDUs and attended the conference as guests.
Evidence of Completion (ISBE form 77-21B) and Evaluation (ISBE form 77-21A) Forms were available for pick-up at the conference registration desk in the Hyatt during regular registration hours.
The forms are no longer available; they had to be picked up in person at the conference. However, completed CPDU Evaluation forms (ISBE form 77-21A) may still be returned to qualify for credit. Completed forms should be sent to IASB as soon as possible, Attn: Judy Williams, 2921 Baker Drive, Springfield, IL, 62703.
This year, board members also were able to complete their state-mandated four hour Professional Development Leadership Training (PDLT) and Performance Evaluation Reform Act (PERA) training at the conference, either during a pre-conference workshop or by attending three panel sessions out of 11 designated offerings; one from each of three topic categories offered.
Those who attended the workshop received their completion certificate at conference. Those who attended the panel sessions were required to pick up, complete and return an official Attendance Sheet at conference so that a certificate of completion could be issued. Each applicant was charged a $15 processing fee.
