Providers on Probation who selected the Department of Education-Approved Staff Development Plan must complete the required training. Due to the current travel ban and social-distancing guidelines, all instructor-led courses are canceled until further notice.
In an effort to support Providers on Probation and other preschool educators taking the online courses, the VPK Regional Facilitators will offer Virtual Study Buddies sessions for each course included in the Department of Education-approved Staff Development Plan.
The Virtual Study Buddies sessions are recommended for participants who have completed the specified online course but have not yet completed the end-of-course assessment. Each session provides a high-level review of the online course content while allowing time for the Regional Facilitators to answer participant questions about the course.
The Virtual Study Buddies sessions will be available to providers beginning June 1. Use these resources to learn more and how to register for Virtual Study Buddies sessions:
