All elementary teachers who teach science in an ISEC school are required to be trained on the Next Generation Science Standards curriculum. This training is for newly hired teachers or those who have changed grade levels.
This year all ISEC Kindergarten teachers will need to attend training this summer as we are supporting NEW Kindergarten (Earth and Physical) Kits. Only Kindergarten teachers who attend summer training will get a kit.
Teachers wanting a refresher are welcome to attend. (without stipend)
ISEC teachers will receive a daily stipend if they are: new to a school, new to a grade, or a Kindergarten teacher:
- $68 per day for attending the ONLINE five day Training (Signed W-9 Required)
- $145 per day for attending the IN PERSON four day Training (Signed W-9 Required)
Training is also offered to some teachers from select schools outside of the ISEC network, by invitation only. No stipend is given to non-ISEC teachers or teachers attending as a refresher.
