Submit a clock hour proposal for a face to face event WITHOUT 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 event sponsors to offer clock hours.  After an event 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 event. Please allow 10 full working days for 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 is $100.00 per occurrence of each training.  There are many proposals which never have clock hours claimed. This fee helps to cover the cost of the time and effort that goes into processing, reviewing and approving the proposal. Click here for the proposal submission fee agreement and instructions. Please be advised the signed completed agreement is REQUIRED to be received by upon submission of each proposal.

If your event HAS concurrent/breakout sessions (some conferences), go to: Submit a Proposal for a Conference.

Instructions to propose clock hours for events WITHOUT concurrent or breakout sessions (attendees will be together during the event) are below:

1. A complete clock hour proposal must be received by PSESD using pdEnroller a minimum of 10 full working days prior to the first day of the event

2. Events approved for clock hours must be a minimum of 1 hour.  Events may be held over a series of days.  For example: Four clock hours may be approved in 8 one-half sessions, or 4 one-hour sessions, or 2 two-hour sessions, etc.  Meal times and breaks cannot be included when calculating the number of clock hours proposing.

3. A complete proposal must be received for repeated events regardless of the event being approved in the past.

4. Clock hours are offered in half-hour increments. For example, an event lasting 3 hours and 45 minutes is eligible for 3 hours and 30 minutes of clock hours. 

5. Approval cannot be granted for staff meetings. 

6. All acronyms used in the proposal are required to be defined.

7. Each event approved for clock hours is evaluated by clock hour attendees using the  pdEnroller online clock hour evaluation. 

8. Clock hour fees are paid by attendees claiming clock hours and are $3.00 per clock hour, $15.00 minimum fee, per person, per event. 

9. Event sponsors requesting clock hour approval will be responsible for administering clock hours.
