SUMMER ACADEMY for G/T 30 Hour Foundation Courses
There are two options for the 30-hour G/T Foundation Coursework which is required by Texas Education Agency (TEA) for those who teach G/T students or have authority over planning and programming of those students. All classes are online from 9am until 3pm. Each session requires a morning and afternoon online session in addition to independent research and work time. Check in begins at 8:30am.
CAUTION: You MUST register for each session separately (registering for Day 1 does NOT automatically register you for the whole academy- this allows for flexibility in scheduling in case you need to attend in June and July to get all sessions in).
