Submit a clock hour proposal for a conference WITH concurrent/breakout sessions
Clock Hour Services provides transcripts, evaluations, evaluation summaries, official Washington state educator clock hour documentation for individuals, as well as guidance and instructions to assist conference sponsors to offer clock hours. After a conference has been approved for clock hours, an email will be sent, to the contact who submitted the proposal, containing instructions and information to administer clock hours at the conference. Please allow 30 days for conference approval.
PLEASE NOTE: Puget Sound ESD has instituted a clock hour proposal submission fee. The fee applies to training providers submitting clock hour proposals through pdEnroller who are not K-12 schools. The fee for conferences with breakout/concurrent sessions is $150.00 for each day of the conference. There are many proposals which never have clock hours claimed. This fee covers the cost of the time and effort that goes into processing, reviewing and approving the proposal. Click here for the proposal submission fee agreement for CONFERENCES and instructions.
