Cancellation Policy:

Due to several last-minute cancellations, we've had to enact the following cancellation policy.

Registrants may cancel at anytime; however, there is a fee associated with the cancellation:

• 10-14 days prior to beginning of Core Training (July 9-13): Schools/School Districts will be refunded 50% of tuition and fees for Core Training
• 3-9 days prior to beginning of Core Training (July 14-20): Schools/School District will be refunded 25% of tuition and fees for Core Training
• Less than 3 days notice (July 21-22): Schools/School District will not be refunded any portion of the tuition and fees for Core Training

If, in the event of a natural disaster (flooding, fire, tornado, etc.), and the Core Training has to be canceled from the affiliate university perspective, then the schools/school districts will be refunded 100% of any payment that is received up until that point. The University of Iowa will give at least a 24-48 hour notice, and the participants will be contacted directly.

Purchase Classroom Supplies and Equipment at the Store in myPLTW
In order to access the Store, you just need a myPLTW account. All myPLTW user roles – Program Coordinator, Site Coordinator, Teacher, and General User – have access to the Store in myPLTW. We established the General User role so that school and district staff who support PLTW program operations, such as purchasing agents, IT staff, and grant managers, can access features like the Store in myPLTW.

Reminder: Launch Lead Teacher Update Training
All Launch Lead Teachers credentialed before June 1, 2017 are required to take part in an online update training. This online training provides all the tools and support they need to train and prepare other teachers to facilitate PLTW Launch in the classrooms.

Ensuring Curriculum Access, in All Situations
We design and develop PLTW courses with accessibility for all students in mind. We have also created specific tools and resources to help you support student access in the event of IEP/504 plan requirements, technology barriers (e.g., a student loses a device), purposes of translation (e.g., translations to braille), or some other classroom situation in which accessing the digital version is not possible or feasible.

How to Roster Your Students
To grant students access to Courses and their PLTW curriculum, you’ll need to roster them prior to, or at the start of, the school year. For more information on how to roster students for the 2017-18 school year, read the Student Roster Instructions and use the Student Roster Template to prepare your file.

Reminder: Retrieve Materials and Resources from LMS by Sep. 30
To support teachers' transition to Courses, the new way to access PLTW curriculum, teachers may continue to access the PLTW Learning Management System (LMS) until Sept. 30, 2017, to retrieve or export any materials or resources they wish to save for future use or reference. After Sept. 30, teachers will no longer have access to the PLTW LMS, including Professional Learning Communities (PLCs).

To learn more about how to export materials from the LMS, visit the Getting Ready for the New School Year with PLTW FAQ guide and select "Transitioning from the Current PLCs" and "Transitioning from the PLTW LMS."
