SCECH Forms for District Programs

Interested in providing State Continuing Education Clock Hours (SCECHs) for a program you are offering? Answer these questions:

  1. Will your program enhance an educator's teaching and learning experience?
  2. Will your program broaden an educator's knowledge of their student's educational needs, study proven research, and include the best use of new technologies?
  3. Will your program orchestrate collaboration and sharing of knowledge between educators?
  4. Will your program help staff meet the needs of students who learn in different ways and come from diverse backgrounds?

If so, you can offer SCECHs to your participants.

The most important information to note is:

  • All programs must offer a minimum of .25 hours (15 minutes) of instructional time.
  • The following activities do not count as contact time: welcome, registration, icebreaker, introduction of speaker, breaks, meals, homework.
  • Applications must be received at GISD no less than 25 days prior to the start date of the program.

If you are interested in providing SCECHs for a program you are offering, please contact Angela Whaley, GISD SCECH Coordinator, for directions and applicable paperwork. Angela can be reached at (810) 591-4538 or via email at [email protected].
