Continuing Education Credit for TFS 2017

Certificates will be distributed at the end of the TFS conference. To date, the following organizations have approved TFS 2017 as a continuing education program, which will be noted on the certificates:

  • Montgomery County Public Schools: 8 hours toward a continuing education unit (CEU). (Note from MCPS:  Advanced Professional Certificate holders can submit the certificates received at TFS along with other acceptable CEUs with the MCPS Form 440-34, IF NEEDED for renewal. Otherwise, all educators can put the certificates in their personal professional development folders.)

In addition:

  • The Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE) approved Techniques for Success for 1 MSDE credit for Maryland educators who attend the conference and who complete an assignment after the conference. The assignment involves implementing a new strategy learned at the conference, writing a reflection based on the experience, and submitting the reflection by December 15, 2017. Details about the assignment and how to submit it will be posted here before the conference.
  • Carroll County Public Schools staff are eligible to receive 1 MSDE credit when they attend the conference and complete follow up requirements by December 15, 2017. Click here to review the specific requirements from CCPS.
