PD Clock Hours – Contact hours are regulated by your local district and state department of education. AOSA provides options including ticketed sessions, concerts, and evening events. We are not an approved clock-hour provider in all fifty states. Check with your local school district for prior approval. Directions to obtain a free certificate for PD contact hours, including an attendance verification form are provided in the conference book. It is not necessary to register for a certificate in advance, but you need to complete the log at the conference and submit by December 1. If your district does not accept PD hours, go for the graduate credit.

This Complete Guide to Continuing Education for Teachers provides a state-by-state list of contacts and requirements for the local approval process for CEU units or PD contact hours. Attendees are responsible for their own local approval before attending the conference.

Transcript Request Information:

Grades will be posted by December 15, 2017. After this date a transcript may be requested through the Ashland University transcript request page.

We strongly suggest you print off the transcript form and mail a check or fax your credit card information. Have the registrar send the transcript copy directly to your administrative office by regular, first class mail and you will pay only $6. Your district can print an unofficial copy for your records.

The transcript page offers other option, but there are additional charges. Unless you are in a hurry, the old-fashioned USPS is a simpler option. Thanks for participating!
