May I attend the pre-conference sessions without attending the Conference?
Yes

Can I receive professional development in-service points/hours for attendance?
For many individuals, conference attendance will help fulfill your in-service professional development requirements.  Local school districts or state colleges do the actual awarding of the in-service points for public programs. Each district or college may have slightly different procedures for awarding such points. You will need to check with the appropriate staff person at your institution to complete the required procedures.

FLC will be distributing certificates for continuing education hours to individuals who complete the appropriate documentation.  You must pre-register for this added incentive. This option is on the registration form.

Contact Jessica Ward at wardj@floridaliteracy.org if you require additional documentation of attendance.
