TheEdCollab Consulting + CTLE Hours

Schools can provide CTLE hours for staff members with every Literacy Consulting visit.

Our literacy consulting is inspiring, research based, and classroom-proven. For every hour of assigned learning with one of our consultants, one CTLE hour can be accrued.

For example: Educators generally study with our consultants for 1.5-2 hours, each visit. If the consultant provides an after school workshop, this could be 2-3 contact hours. Over the course of 10 visits, eligible staff members could earn between, on average, 5-20 CTLE hours across the year. Potential totals will vary based on the number of contracted consulting days, schedule, and attendance.
