Pacific University considers distance training program for Douglas County teachers
ROSEBURG, Ore. -- Pacific University is looking to expand the qualifications of Douglas County teachers through a special hybrid program described as a cross between online and in-class learning.
Participants would be taught by the university in areas such as special education and multiple subject focus.
Those interested must at least hold an associate’s degree.
They say the program is still pending based on if enough interest is received.
"Some people have a heart for teaching and education and they never knew that they could do this,” says Holly Hill with Douglas ESD, “so it's giving people, perhaps, answering a dream that they might have. And plus, it's helping the districts as well."
If you're interested there's an informational session scheduled for next Thursday.
They'll be discussing things like program costs, training dates, times and subject matter.
It begins at 5 p.m. at the Douglas ESD office on NE Stephens in Roseburg.
You are asked to RSVP.
