Family and Community Engagement Course

EDPD 5100 477 for 3 SUU Credits = 45 Hours

Are you aware that every Nevada licensed educator hired since 2015 is required to take a three-credit Family and Community Engagement Course and remove this provision from their license? Even if this requirement is not a provision on your license, are you aware that this course is an inexpensive way for you to renew your license if you don’t need to remove this provision?

The Public Education Foundation (PEF) has great news for you!

In partnership with Southern Utah University (SUU), PEF is offering a more affordable virtual Family and Community Engagement Course for Nevada Endorsement for the required three (3) credits (that’s 45 recertification hours AND 15 CUs in CCSD)! Not only is this course fully approved by SUU, but also the Nevada Department of Education.

You can remove this provision on your license and take the online course to learn from two outstanding educators – Dr. Beverly Mathis, and Dr. Vincent L. Richardson, both of whom have served in multiple positions in their service to children and have years of experience in regard to this most critical topic.
