homebaseHave you had the chance yet to explore the professional development offerings in Home Base?

First, you can use Home Base to log in and register for new facilitated sessions this fall by simply clicking on the professional development tab. There’s also an alternate login:

For 43 of our 50 modules, Wednesday, Sept. 3, will be the last day for educators to complete and access a module on the TOPS site (but you had to be registered by June 30). After Sept. 3, the new modules will be available through the Home Base professional development system within NC Educator Effectiveness.

Note: Everyone in the TOPS sessions should completion their certificate printouts bySept. 3 for all modules taken this summer to ensure they have a certificate during the transition to the Home Base PD access.
