The State of Washington Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction, requires at least 150 clock hours every 5 years in order to keep a Professional Teaching Certificate valid. The majority of clock hours must be within the teacher’s subject area. At this time, there are few chances for secondary music teachers to get professional development, particularly in the instrumental jazz genre. In our effort to provide exceptional music education we believe that an important step is supporting teachers in their ongoing education. 10 clock hours (equal to one credit) are available at no extra charge for WMEA members for attend the full day. Grad students and student teachers get a 50% discount. Use code STUDENT at check out.
