Registering for the first time? It is recommended to complete one course to familiarize yourself with the online course format, workload expectations, and basic Blackboard system functions. Click here for more information on Blackboard tutorial resources.
Due to the intensity of the course work, it is recommended that full-time classroom teachers take no more than two courses concurrently.
Prior approval from your principal or supervising administrator is needed in order to count these courses towards teacher reclassification.

There are two Project Inspire sessions:
- Winter-Spring Session (runs from January through April)
