Professional Development Courses Offered Through Local 1274


As a service to our members, teachers and support staff can now take high-quality professional development courses through the Local 1274. These courses are developed by the AFT and taught by our own Local 1274 members as part of the AFT Professional Learning Program. Designed by educators and rooted in evidence-based research, these graduate-level courses provide up to 30 semester hours of credit and 45 hours of professional development hours. The courses are free to members (there is a $30 charge for materials). 


All AFT Professional Development courses offered by Local 1274 are taught by our own teachers and support staff. Members receive a competitive hourly rate for teaching and must attend training at the annual AFT Professional Development Summer Educator Academy. If you are interested in attending next summer’s academy, contact Steve Grossman.
