Summer AC Teacher Training Institutes


2023 AC Teacher Training Institutes

SREB’s Advanced Career virtual Teacher Training Institutes make it simpler and more cost-effective than ever to implement and sustain AC programs. There is no need for costly travel as teachers may work from their school’s lab.

How It Works
  1. Schools complete a memorandum of understanding (MOU), including a pathway that includes one or more AC courses. Download PDF
  2. Send the completed MOU to Beth Green.
  3. Register the teacher for the AC Teacher Training Institute (TTI). New AC Teachers must attend the New AC Teacher Training. Experienced AC Teachers must attend Courses 2 or 3 training prior to teaching the course.

    Optional: Schools seeking individualized instruction for one or more Advanced Career teachers instead of TTI may contract with SREB services.
  4. Schools may contract with SREB for additional private support for AC teachers to support instruction and implementation through personalized coaching.
