Information about CEUs:

The CEU is a nationally recognized unit of measurement of non-credit, postsecondary-level study. It has been established by the International Association of Continuing Education and Training (IACET). You may earn CEUs for attending SIRC fall and/or spring courses offered by the MASE Center. CEUs are designed for use where employers, re-licensure agencies and other authorities require a specified number of hours of study on a regular basis for career advancement purposes. Grading for CEU courses is on a credit/no-credit basis.

  • SIRC offers 0.6 CEUs for attending the Super SIRC Science Saturday. Cost $100.
    Payment for credit for these units is due on May 7, 2016.
  •       *Fees are split between CCE and the MASE Center for processing.

  • CEU credit based on attendance, partial credit is not available.
  • Birth date is required for CEUs when signing-up.

For Non-Credit participation:

Funding: What You Can Do

SIRC is aligned with the No Child Left Behind regulations. District and school site Title I and Title II funds can be used for registration costs. Additionally, your district may have other grants or funds or funds related to science, literacy, BTSA, or EL instruction which can support your attendance.

Many districts support the attendance of their teachers to the SIRC program:
