Answer the questions in this home study. You will need a copy of Section 13: Distance Education of the WVABE Instructor Handbook. You may access a copy of this section in your PLATO training notebook or at the WVABE website at http://wvde.state.wv.us/abe/tcher_handbook_pdf/section13.pdf.
Your responses will be reviewed by the Distance Education Office personnel. Upon review, if no further clarification is needed, you will be notified that you have sucessfully completed the in-service requirement; your DE certification will be recorded in AEMIS as elective credit in-service credit; and you will be approved to begin counting "after class" student contact hours (Proxy Hours).
If, upon review, further clarification is needed, you will be asked to submit additional information BEFORE your in-service credit is awarded and approval is given to begin counting Proxy Hours in AEMIS. If you have questions, please contact Ellen Killion at firstname.lastname@example.org or 1-800-257-3723 ext. 202.
