PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT OPPORTUNITIES

Renaissance has worked with William Carey College to offer recertification credit for completion of a full Course Suite in Renaissance-U.  This is currently only available for educators in Mississippi.  These credits are for recertification only, not college credit, and may be referred to as a contact hour, CEU, CPDU or SDU.  If uncertain, customers should inquire with their district.

Educators can currently earn 1.0 CEUs for the Assessment Course Suite, and .7 CEUS for each of the Reading and Math Course Suites.  School or district administration will need to submit a letter and either an enrollment card or list of educators completing the online course along with course payment to the appropriate contact information.
