    TIDE Courses

    Below you will find a list of pre-approved TIDE courses created by the Professional Development Committee. If you are planning to take one of the approved courses use the TIDE Course Notification form on this page to inform the district of your intent to take a TIDE course. Once the form is completed it will automatically be submitted to the Professional Development Office. All TIDE Course Notification forms must be received in the Professional Development Office by the first day of class in order to receive credit.

    While there are additional courses offered through TIDE,  those courses are not automatically pre-approved. If you would like to take a course that is not on the approved list then you will need to complete the Approval for Out-of-District CEU credit that is available in your school office or by emailing Ann Impola (aimpola@cusd200.org), or the Graduate Approval Form that is available from Human Resources.
