Teachers Get Clock Hours For Attending Wintergrass Workshops!
Educators can earn professional development clock hours, valid toward teaching certificate renewal, by attending any of the workshops at Wintergrass Music Festival and the rehearsals and performances of the Wintergrass Youth Academy and Youth Orchestra.
Regular paid admission to the festival is required to attend workshops. Daily and weekend tickets to Wintergrass are far less expensive than almost any education workshop or seminar of comparable duration. Wintergrass workshops are taught by certificated teachers, professional clinicians, and veteran performers. See prices and order tickets at our Secure Web Ticket Site.
Clock hour forms will be available at the Wintergrass ticket counter, information booth, and festival office at the Bellevue Hyatt Regency throughout the festival. To obtain credit, teachers record each workshop they go to, and have the form signed by the workshop teacher/provider or Wintergrass workshop staff member to verify attendance.
Up to 20 clock hours are available, at $2 per hour, payable by separate check to Seattle Public Schools. Details and instructions are attached to clock hour forms at the festival.
