Exchange Day Procedures

Credit for Attendance

Certified provider: Barbers Hill ISD is a TEA-certified provider of professional development training.

Scheduled in-service days: sessions offered during scheduled in-service times may offer CPE hours, but will not be available for exchange purposes unless otherwise noted.

Technology-sponsored sessions: certain technology-sponsored sessions may (with principal approval) qualify as exchange hours.

Responsibility of individual: It is the responsibility of the individual employee to ensure he/she has enough hours for exchange days or make up days, or enough CPEs for certification purposes. No one should depend on a single provider for the required hours. While every effort is made to ensure a variety of training opportunities, there is no guarantee that any course or courses published for presentation by BHISD will meet your individual requirements.
