The Illinois Reading Council is an approved Illinois State Board of Education Professional Development provider. IRC members will earn one (1) professional development clock hour for watching the entire 60-minute webinar.
If you plan to watch the "Live" webinar, you must register and be logged on for the entire webinar as the webinar service tracks your individual participation. Please be prepared to receive the Participation Pass Code and record the Webinar Questions that are given at the end of the webinar. Participants will be required to provide this information with the ISBE Evaluation Form following the webinar.
New this year, IRC members can watch the recorded webinars from the 2017-2018 series only for PD clock hours. Participants will still be required to enter the Participation Passcode and answer the Webinar Questions on the ISBE Evaluation Form before clock hours will be given.
