    To attend the training and receive a substitute, new teachers need to:

     

    1. Register for a session using Eduphoria Workshop. This is a full day of training and teachers should not set up appointments (doctor, dental, after school activities, etc.) for any part of the day.

     

    1. You must use Eduphoria Workshop to register for the sessions. Registration will close at 8:30 AM one week before the training date in order to arrange for substitutes.

     

    1. Complete a 905 form and begin it with you on the day of the training. Use the attached document if needed.

     

    1. You do not need to schedule for a substitute. HCM will request a substitute for this professional learning day.  If you need to cancel your scheduled substitute, please send an email to karla.lester@fwisd.org.  If a teacher does not show for the training, the school is responsible for the substitute cost.

     

    1. A substitute will be requested for the location/school listed in Eduphoria Workshop. Please ensure that your school location is selected.

     

    1. If you have already received this training during the new teacher academy week or in previous years, do not register to attend again.

     

     

    • If you work at more than one campus, please reply back to me, indicating the campus you are scheduled to be at on the day of the training.

     

     

    Sessions are from 8:30 AM to 4:00 PM with an hour for lunch and two 15-minute breaks.

     

    Punctual arrival assures all participants receive maximum instructional time.  Participants who arrive 15 minutes after start time will be required to reschedule.
