French Professional Development Credits
All candidates in the Lyon 2018 workshop will receive, upon successful completion of the course, a Certification of Completion which attests to your efforts and your presence at all the activities and seminars during the course. For many school districts, this certificate is sufficient proof of successful professional development. To be sure of exactly which professional qualifications you need, check with your department chair, superintendent, or administrative office to be sure before you leave for the summer.
The French Traveler has requested reauthorization to certify 85 Massachusetts professional development hours upon completion of a paper which shows mastery of any subject covered during our stage. Papers are due by September 1 following the summer stage. The French Traveler will share with the interested participant the requirements necessary to show mastery. We hold the papers for a period of five years in case of an audit by the Massachusetts Department of Education. We are currently awaiting recertification by May 15, 2018.
