Notice of 2019-2020 Fee Change:
For the last twenty-two years the Long Beach Teacher Center has done its best to provide high quality professional development to the teachers and staff of the Long Beach School community utilizing grant monies provided by the NYS Department of Education.
In 2011 under the fear that Teacher Centers would no longer be funded, the Long Beach Teacher Center became a 503c Not-for-Profit. This past academic year, the Center provided 18 classes for 231 teachers, staff, and community members. The NYS grant covered only four of these classes, with the not-for-profit side funding the remaining courses. While the not-for-profit is happy to cover these expenses, moving forward the Policy Board of the Teacher Center must act to ensure that the Center remains financially sustainable.
Beginning this year, the Long Beach Teacher Center Policy Board has approved a $40 per 10-hour course fee once the grant’s course budget line is expended. This fee will help cover instructor stipends and insure that the Center can offer as many professional development courses as possible. The fee will be clearly identified in the course descriptions and inservice credit will only be authorized once the fee is paid in full. The Center will accept payment via paypal, check, or money order.
At this time the Long Beach Teacher Center is accepting course proposals for the current year. If you are interested in running a course, please visit the our website at lbeachtc.org and select “course proposals”. If you have any questions about coursework or the new fee structure, please contact the Director at email@example.com or leave a message for us at 516-897-2083.
