Registration

Cost

There is no cost to attend the CLASS Conference sessions. You must pre-register in the professional learning catalog for each session you wish to attend.

Plans changed?

Please be considerate of colleagues and register only for sessions you actually plan to attend, and unenroll as soon as any conflicts arise. Especially for face-to-face sessions.

Do I get credit for attending?

You may be eligible for building or district professional learning credit, as determined by your Principal (building) or curriculum specialist (district). You will select the appropriate credit type when signing up in the professional learning catalog.

Credit hours are only available for attending the scheduled session. No credit hours are available for viewing (potential) recordings of the sessions after they have ended.

Do I get paid for attending?

If you selected 'Learning Acceleration Professional Learning' when signing up for the session, and fall within the maximum of 14 hours, you will be eligible to receive a stipend. Questions should be directed to the office of Professional Development at 402-436-1851.

Build-Your-Own Schedule!

You can sign up for exactly what you need! Build the schedule that makes sense for you by registering for the sessions of your choosing. All of the sessions being offered are 1 hour in length.

Remember you are creating your own personal schedule for the day. Session leaders will not be able to look up your registrations for you. Make note of what sessions you registered for, or use the mobile app to view them.

New to LPS?

If you are a new-to-LPS employee you can sign up for sessions in the professional learning catalog with a "guest" account. Bring your own laptop, but you may be limited to observing sessions, depending upon the tool and your status in the onboarding process.

Mobile Access

To have access to your own schedule, you might want to install the professional learning catalog (Performance Matters) mobile app on a device that you plan to bring to the conference. To do so:

  1. Download the app for your device: iOS or Android
  2. To login, use your LPS credentials and the LPS code: jcsfjw

Tips

Bring your LPS-assigned laptop.

If you are a new-to-LPS employee who has not been assigned a laptop yet, you can bring your own laptop but you may be limited to observing sessions, depending upon the tool and your status in the onboarding process.

Covid Mask

Do you need a mask?

Per LPS and community health guidelines, UNVACCINATED staff are required to wear a multilayer cloth face covering over the mouth and nose during this face-to-face gathering. Face covering is optional for fully vaccinated adults.

Dress in Layers

The air conditioning can be tricky in large buildings in the summer. It gets chilly sometimes!

The CLASS Plan...

Rather than create a technology plan that emphasizes the “what,” LPS branded our tech plan CLASS (Connected Learning for the Achievement of Students & Staff) to articulate why the plan was adopted.

LPS resolves to support, train, and develop staff so that district supplied digital resources can be leveraged to extend the reach of instruction, enhance access to data and expand learning opportunities.
