    I would love to take a few classes to build up some credits. Can anyone recommend an online class that would give me a few credits? Am I too late to take one this summer? HELP! Thank you...

    I was wondering if graduate certificates count, like from APU

    For continuing education or professional development?

    In my area they count. There's a formula to translate university credits into CEUs. At least they used to, who knows now.

    Most teachers throughout my district use USD. I did, too! Very economical and easy to complete! :2cents:

    Was there any difficulty to get your district to approve the credits? How does that work? Did you take the course and USD reports the credits to your school? Easy? Or is it some involved process?

    In my district, no advanced approval is needed.

    I'd enroll in the USD course, finish the class, and pay for them to send a transcript to my house.

    Once the transcript arrived, I'd send a copy to HR.

    Overall, the process (from start to finish) was easy!

    Thank you so much. This is great news. I thought it was interesting that USD partners with Scholastic. I'm looking forward to taking a course.

    YTG, what courses did you take? Did you like the course? Was it workable for you?

    I'll let you know what I decide, in case anyone else is interested in salary advancement.

    I honestly have no idea what courses I took (it was years ago). The courses were self-paced (everything was due at the end of the semester). I took enough courses to allow myself to move to the very last column on the salary schedule.

    P.S. The courses from USD are very, very economical.
