Learning Center Classes

Check Out Our Classes At The Learning Center

From the Desk Of Penny Schuckman,

Learning Center Director:

 The best way to celebrate your independence from the tyranny of high workshop prices is to take advantage of a FREE workshop at the Learning Center!  So come in and cool off with an engaging learning opportunity!  Our workshops are open to ALL USD 261 employees, Board of Education members, and substitute staff.  If you are needing to relicense soon or would like to move over on the pay scale, most of the classes are available for graduate credit through Baker University (2 full day workshops = 1 graduate credit = $75).  We are looking forward to seeing you soon! 

Our Calendar of Events and workshop brochures are available at the following link

Please visit the link above, click on the workshop you are interested in, and click the “Register” button!  You can also email Dartha at dlewis@usd261.com to register if you prefer.  All activities are on the My Learning Plan district catalog if you would like to take them for re-licensure points.  Enrolling in an activity through My Learning Plan does not register you for the workshop.  Thank you in advance for your attendance!
