In Partnership with VCU, GCPS Offers Personalized Course to Our Educators

Virginia Commonwealth University is celebrating its School of Education’s 50th Anniversary by extending a unique invitation to area school divisions. We’ve accepted.

In recognition of the School of Education’s celebration, Goochland County Public Schools and VCU have partnered to offer a great opportunity to Goochland educators for the Fall 2014 semester. VCU’s tuition cost for this 3-credit course is $297. GCPS is further defraying the cost to our educators by sponsoring each registrant an additional $97, making the total cost to our employees $200. (This remaining amount does qualify for tuition reimbursement by following the division’s tuition reimbursement protocol.)

TEDU 494 Topical Seminar in Education is a course taught by GCPS division leaders (Drs. Lane, Gretz, Hendron, and Geyer) on key topics related to teaching and learning. It is a three-credit course and may be used for license renewal points (90) by individuals holding a bachelor’s or graduate degree. [Please note: This special course is restricted by the university to students NOT currently participating in a VCU program.]

To enroll in VCU’s anniversary course with GCPS, please complete the registration form and the residency form and return them both to Mrs. Diane Bennett at the division administrative office by Monday, August 25. Tuition checks will be collected the first day of class (Monday, September 22) and should be written to “Goochland County Public Schools.” The course will be limited to the first 20 participants.

TEDU 494 will meet at GHS on Mondays from 4-7PM: September 22-November 17, 2014; you may access a draft syllabus here.
