Preparing today's students for tomorrow's world in a caring learning environment

Book Study for Renewal Credit

Book Study Groups - District Contact is Kristan Hunter

As we continue to work to offer individualized professional learning opportunities with district staff members, I wanted to inform district educators of renewal credit opportunities that can be obtained through a Book Study option. Please see the details below and please contact Kristan Hunter for any questions, assistance and possible book information that you would like to support this work.

Required Contact Hours:

15 hours is required for renewal credit to be given. Meeting times can range from at least 1 hour to 5 hours.


A study group facilitator acts as a leader and coordinator (group processor replaces an instructor) for group activities, but is not an instructor. This person has the responsibility for submitting paperwork for approval, recording attendance, coordinating meeting logs, scheduling and communicating with the group members. Please note that there will be collaborative support for this paperwork.

Study Group Size:

A minimum of 4 participants (this can count the facilitator) and a maximum of 10 participants is required for the study group size.

Renewal Credit Offered:

One hour of teacher or administrator renewal credit through Grant Wood AEA is available for $35.

Please see the following links from GWAEA that would be submitted for book study approval and paperwork. Please note that paperwork must be submitted 3 weeks prior to the first meeting date to ensure clarification opportunities and revision opportunities with the GWAEA Professional Development Office.

Paperwork forms will include:
