The Southern Regional
Institute and ETTC welcomes all school districts to join our successful
consortium. The consortium brings together 94 public school districts, non-public and charter schools, not-for-profit
and affiliate organizations from five counties across New Jersey. A school district can
join our organization or utilize our services in several ways:
- Become a member: Southern Regional Consortium members pay an annual per-student membership
fee, and receive an annual allocation of ETTC Hours that can
be used to register for almost all our workshops. The fee for the
year is $3.25 per student. (ETTC membership fees are evaluated annually
by the ETTC Steering Committee.) For details, please check the ETTC
Hours Allocation. The ETTC Calendar lists all current workshops, and members often schedule additional workshops
onsite to meet district in-service calendar needs or to provide after-school
professional development options for their staff. School district members enjoy other membership advantages as well.
To join the ETTC Consortium, please mail a written request on school
letterhead to the Southern Regional Institute & ETTC, Stockton
University, Parkway Building, 101 Vera King Farris Drive, Galloway, New Jersey 08205. Please include
in your letter the number of enrolled students (the October 15 ASSA
on-roll PreK-12 count is usually used) for the district. We will confirm
your membership with a letter, and your teachers can begin registering
for ETTC workshops almost immediately. Billing is conducted annually
by Stockton College for all member school districts.
- Purchasing training through ETTC Hours: Teachers from non-member school districts can register for the general calendar of ETTC workshops through the purchase of bulk training by paying $24 per ETTC Hour in sets of 50 ETTC Hours. When a school's purchase of bulk training equals their membership fee, they are considered to be full members of the consortium. ETTC Hours can be ordered online or via fax. Purchasing ETTC Hours is a cost-effective method for planning professional development in advance through the school year and is helpful for grant-writing and budgeting purposes as well.
- Purchasing custom
training: School districts can contract with the ETTC for any of
our workshop topics to be conducted onsite and to be customized to the
technology, curriculum and scheduling needs of the district. The ETTC
Steering Committee has set a standard member rate for custom training
of $226 per hour or 9 ETTC hours per hour for up to 20 participants.
Higher rates may apply for specialty workshops. School districts can purchase training ahead of time
through a purchase order that includes the number of hours requested,
with the understanding that training times and content will be scheduled
later to meet the needs of the district and of the ETTC. Custom training
time can be purchased online.
