Education Will Fund Courses at UVI for School Staffs

Nov. 7, 2007 – The Department of Education will pay 100 percent of tuition and associated fees for one three-credit course during the upcoming Spring 2008 semester at the University of the Virgin Islands for the territory's public school teachers, paraprofessionals and support staff (including administrators). All courses offered to paraprofessionals will be at the undergraduate level, while courses offered to teachers and other non-teaching staff can be either at the undergraduate or graduate levels. Paraprofessionals must enroll in education courses or other courses leading to an education degree while other non-teaching staff must enroll in a course related to duties they perform at the department, according to a press release from the Department of Education's Office of Human Resources.
To qualify, all persons must be currently employed with the department. Current non-certified teachers should need no more than two courses to meet the V.I. Board of Education’s (VIBE) certification requirements and have no outstanding obligations with the department. When applicable, conditions will apply for all teachers who have not attempted to do the praxis exam within the last school year. Teachers who do not meet these criteria will be placed on a waiting list and will be offered this opportunity based on availability. Non-certified teachers are given first preference. However, everyone is encouraged to come and apply.
Due to the limited number of available courses, interested individuals are asked to act quickly as the selections will be made on a first come, first serve basis. Individuals are responsible for buying their own textbooks and reimbursement to the DOE will be required in the event they fail a course.
For registration, visit the HR's offices, located at the Curriculum Center on St. Croix and at Kongens Gade on St. Thomas before Saturday, Dec. 8. No phone sign-ups will be allowed.
For more information, call the HR offices at 772-3848; or 774-0100, ext. 8039 or 8052.
