Note: Once you join, if you are a Shelby County teacher, you need to make sure you sign up in PDExpress to get PD credit for the classes. We will leave the classes open in PDExpress until the end of the day on Friday so you may sign up.

Also, Shelby County teachers need to check that they have turned on Right Recommendations so the chat window will show during the presentation. Click the blue extension (see red circle below) and make sure the Right Recommendations slider is on ( see arrow below).

Hide Recommendations drop down.
