PD Hours: 3.0

Registration: 8:00 am to 8:30 am; Session: 8:30 am to 11:30 am


Starting this year, Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) is requiring IEIN numbers upon sign in to track your PD hours. NSSED will be complying by having this on the sign in sheets for all PD workshops. If you do not enter your PD hours through ELIS please disregard. 

If you do not know how to find your IEIN number you can find it by logging into the Educator Licensure Information System (ELIS) - it will be in the upper right corner of the page. This will soon become part of the registration process for future classes, so if you have completed a class with us we should have it on file from here on out.
