Common Questions

What do I do if I am not a part of a team?

If you are not a part of a team, please indicate that when you register, answer the question “are you a member of a team”, provide your name, role, email address, and select the content sessions that you would like to register for. 

What if I am part of a team?

Team leads are responsible for registering all team members.  Team leads, please indicate whether you plan to attend the pre-institute session on June 10th that focuses on navigating the transition program tool.  We also need to know which sessions team members are planning to attend.  Only individuals who are part of the team will attend team planning sessions.  All teams will be assigned to a Zoom room for team planning sessions.  CDE and NTACT staff will be available to answer questions during your team planning time.  Therefore, it is important that we know how many teams are planning to attend.

Attendance and PD credit

We are tracking attendance to sessions in order to award PD credit.
