    FAQ:

    1. How do I register?
      IN-DISTRICT WORKSHOPS - Register for IN-DISTRICT workshops in KALPA.  
      COOP Workshops: - Register for Coop workshops at their website: https://www.escweb.net/ar_esc/default.aspx 
    2. How do I get credit for PD in KALPA?
      IN-DISTRICT WORKSHOPS - Credit for Flex day will be given when attendance is validated.
      COOP WORKSHOPS - Reports are pulled after attendance is verified and record of RPS staff is entered into KALPA, so it is NOT NECESSARY to submit requests in KALPA for COOP workshop
      OTHER OUT of DISTRICT Workshops - When the PD office knows about workshop travel the records are entered in KALPA.  If not, you can SUBMIT a REQUEST for credit.  (If several staff attend the same workshop you can notify the PD office and one entry can be made, saving time.)

      YES, Register in KALPA.
    4. How will I know if I am approved?

    6. If there is a registration fee paid by the  district, can the activity count as Flex credit?
