June Workshop Registrations
In consideration of schools & districts that are still finalizing hiring, we have extended the 2014 registration deadline. Late registrations will be accepted on a space-available basis until June 10. Registrations received after June 5 will be assessed a $25 late fee.
June 2: Any participant registering after June 2 has two payment methods, 1) pay all tuition and fees in full at time of registration, OR 2) must supply a Purchase Order (PO) number and/or information for contact person in your district’s business office.
Registration Cancellations & Refunds
All cancellations must be made in writing and received no later than 5:00 p.m. on May 27, 2014. There is a $175 cancellation fee when received prior to May 27. No refunds will be given after May 27. School systems may substitute a paid participant with another teacher in the same course. Schools or individuals will be billed the full amount if a registered participant does not show.
Course Cancellation Policy
Every effort will be made to maintain the published schedule of workshops, events such as insufficient enrollment or instructor illness may require a schedule adjustment or cancellation. Registrants will be notified of any changes in the published information. If a workshop is cancelled, all registrants will be given the opportunity to transfer to an open workshop or will be issued a full refund.
Minnesota Teacher Scholarships
Minnesota teachers who are teaching or plan to teach and AP* course are eligible for a scholarship from the state. This year, the Minnesota Department of Education expects to reimburse school districts at least $500 for tuition for each teacher attending an Advanced Placement* Summer Institute. Depending upon the total number of enrollments for this summer, MDE may be able to reimburse school districts up to the full cost of the Institute; unfortunately, that decision will not be made until after all summer institutes have closed.
Please contact Jacqui McKenzie, Minnesota Department of Education at 651-582-8852 for application and funding information.
Please note: this form should be submitted directly to the MN Department of Education along with a copy of your registration form. Registrations must be pre-paid, MDE will reimburse schools/districts upon receipt of participation after the commencement of the Institute.
