Seating for EDU 591 and EDU 592 is limited with a maximum enrollment of 25 students per course. Seats are awarded based on the following priorities:

  2. Second priority (middle level A)—teachers who are currently teaching GT students and have not taken an endorsement class or those who have completed one class and are assigned to teach GT students for the upcoming year.
  3. Third priority (middle level B)—teachers who have not completed any courses but are assigned to teach GT students for the upcoming semester or school year.
  4. Fourth priority (lowest level)—teachers and administrators who have not completed any courses and who are not assigned to teach GT students.

Maximum enrollment for EDU 599 Creativity Institute is 15. There are no priority requirements for EDU 599.

PLEASE NOTE: Priority will be given to applicants located in each region before others will be considered for placement in each class. Confirmation of priority is required from the applicant’s principal or gifted coordinator before you will be considered for enrollment.
