Certificates of Completition

Facilitators who attend EAST Seminar will be able to access professional development certificates by Friday, August 11. See “Professional Development Credits” for more information.

Dress Code

The dress code for EAST Seminar is casual. EAST staff will likely wear jeans and EAST apparel. However, we do encourage facilitators to bring a light jacket, cardigan, pullover, or a small blanket, as some of the meeting rooms can be chilly!

Extenuating Circumstances Policy

According to the EAST Statement of Assurances signed by your school administrator and EAST, facilitators are required to actively and fully participate in professional development activities (including, but not limited to, Phase Training, EAST Conference, and EAST Seminar) on a continuing basis as part of regular duties. If, due to extenuating circumstances, a facilitator is unable to attend EAST Seminar in person, they must (1) notify their program’s site support representative, (2) submit a letter to EAST from a school administrator detailing those extenuating circumstances, and (3) register to attend EAST Seminar On-Demand. Beginning in 2023, this option will only be available to facilitators once every three years. Failure to comply with this policy may not place your program in immediate jeopardy, however a corrective action plan between EAST and your school could become necessary if combined with additional compliance insufficiencies.

Should extenuating circumstances arise, notify your site support person and upload your administrator’s letter to the EAST Seminar Registration Portal by 3 pm CST on Friday, June 30.

Facilitators participating in EAST Seminar On-Demand must complete all required professional development by 3 pm CST on Friday, August 4. A minimum of 12 professional development hours, including General Sessions, must be earned by this time.

Professional Development Credits

You may be wondering how many credit hours you can earn at Seminar. Facilitators are required to earn at least 12 hours (including both General Sessions), but you are able to create your own schedule and obtain up to 20 credit hours (through live, on-demand, and general sessions). Additional networking opportunities may also be worth credit hours.

All recorded sessions will be uploaded to the Digital Content Library on Juno by Friday, July 28. Facilitators who are unable to attend EAST Seminar in person (due to extenuating circumstances) and facilitators who would like to earn additional professional developmen credits will have until 3 pm CST on Friday, August 4 to watch sessions for earned credit.

* Facilitators who host or present a session may receive double credit hours.
