OSPI Clock Hours

Up to five (5) professional development clock hours are available to advisers who will be attending sessions and the keynote as conference participants. Clock hours are not available for time spent giving presentations or for judging (per OSPI.) Clock hours must be paid for in advance by the individual and not by the school (another OSPI rule.) For this reason, you will be sent a clock hour request form. You will then be sent an invoice that includes a pay by credit card option. You can also pay by check in person on the morning of the event. You may not register for or earn clock hours retroactively. Before a clock hour verification form can be mailed to you, you must also complete and submit a short evaluation form.
Questions about Clock Hours? Contact Kevin Smyth: 
Please send clock hour request forms to the following advisers who will participate in the March 9 conference. Email addresses are with names listed above. (Click on "+" to add additional names.)
