Distribution of Arkansas funds to public school teachers will be based on a priority status system that the state sets-up each year. We will contact you regarding your eligibility once you have registered.
The APSI week is intense and the consultants cover an enormous amount of material in a very short amount of time. The College Board and the Arkansas Department of Education require teachers to attend every session (all 30 hours of instruction) in order to be certified or to receive state funding. Teachers who have state funding and have to miss part of the institute will need to make arrangements to cover the costs.
For 2013, the fee for those who will stay on campus is $700. For those who will stay off-campus and commute, the price is $550.
If you are not able to attend, you must notify us via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) no later than Wednesday, July 10, 2013. You will be responsible for the full payment if you do not cancel by this date.
If you are not receiving state funding, you should make arrangements to cover the costs of the institute. Your school district must create a purchase order. An invoice will be sent to your school. Please send all payments and purchase orders to: Donald W. Reynolds Center for Enterprise Development; Attn: Jennifer Stewart c/o APSI; 145 N. Buchanan Ave., Ste. 140; 1 University of Arkansas; Fayetteville, AR 72701.
Once you register, you will receive a confirmation letter that indicates whether or not you will receive state funding.
