Teacher Institute will provide a schedule of events and a certificate of completion as proof of your participation in the program. Before you attend the Institute, be sure to check with your local school district for its requirements to receive professional development credit (continuing education credit, clock hours, professional development hours, etc.). If additional paperwork is required (if The Colonial Williamsburg needs to submit paperwork to be an approved provider in your district or state), please contact us 60 days prior to your arrival to confirm what needs to be done.
