Failure to cancel ten days prior to the workshop date will result in forfeiture of the registration fee if already paid.  Any “no-shows” with unpaid registrations will be invoiced for the registration fee.

Weather

In case of inclement weather, please listen to WJBC, AM 1230 or check our website for cancellations or late starts. Also, due to temperature variations and/or personal preference please bring a sweater or jacket if needed.

CPDU vs Graduate Credit

All classes will have the same format for graduate credit or CPDU's. We view the graduate credit option as a benefit for the participant. Classes are designed around best practice models of professional development which include reflective, practical application. Please remember 1 CPDU is issued for each hour of class attended.

Graduate Credit

Is offered through a partnership with Lindenwood University.  If you are interested in graduate credit hours for classes offered, please bring a check made payable to ROE 17 to the first day of class.  As of 8/1/2020 pricing for credit is one hour ($125); two hours ($250) and three hours ($375).  This payment is in addition to any class registration fee. Contact Lindenwood University for transcripts.

Missed Classes

Graduate credit classes must have 100% attendance for credit to be issued.
