Summer professional development offers stipend for teachers 

Summer is right around the corner, and with it, various opportunities for free professional development for Dallas ISD teachers. One of those free opportunities is the Sue Rose Summer Institute for Teachers, which is currently accepting applications. 

Dallas ISD teachers from all grade levels and disciplines are welcome to participate. In partnership with the University of Dallas, the institute will provide a stipend of up to $1,000, books, lunches, seminars, and professional development credit of up to 98 continuing education hours, and up to six hours of graduate credit. Participants will explore profound literature across all subjects, fostering inclusive discussions. 

The institute will take place from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekdays from Thursday, June 27, through Friday, July 19, with the exception of July 4 and 5. Participants have the option of attending all three weeks or may register for whichever week or weeks best suit their schedule.

There is no registration deadline indicated on the website, however the Dallas ISD Social Studies Department recommends that teachers sign up as soon as possible to secure their spot.
