Frequently Asked Questions

  1. Can I get Continuing Education Units (CEUs) by attending the annual NCCSS Conference? If so, how?
  2. Yes, a participant may receive one CEU (ten hours) by attending the NCCSS Conference. The participant should thoroughly complete the CEU form found in his/her registration packet, listing each of the sessions he/she attended during the Conference. The form should then be submitted to the participant’s Local Education Agency (LEA). Final awarding of CEUs must be approved by the participant’s LEA. The LEA determines the content area and the number of CEUs granted—not the NCCSS.

  3. I’m a presenter and I need Audio-Visual equipment for my presentation. What should I do?
  4. Option 1: Presenters are welcome to bring their own audio-visual equipment with them to the Conference. Presenters should remember to bring extension cords and power strips, too.
