Professional Development Opportunities 

The STAR NET Region IV workshops cover interest areas identified by our Region IV Focus Group, workshop participants and Illinois State Board of Education initiative and priorities.   

All workshops offered through STAR NET are free of charge, unless otherwise noted on our website.  Registrations are taken by mail, fax, or online, however we do NOT take them by phone.  Submit one registration per person (i.e. do not list multiple names on one form).

Most workshops begin at 9:00 am and conclude at 3:00 pm except when noted.  There is a one hour lunch break on your own, unless otherwise noted.  Webinar times vary and are listed on our webinars page. Some STAR NET workshops and webinars are a collaborative event with other sponsors and are noted as such.

Registration Policy

Please do not assume automatic acceptance of registration.  STAR NET is an Illinois State Board of Education Early Childhood grant project.  If a waiting list develops, priority is given to parent or legal guardian of a child ages 2 through 6 with an Individual Family Service Plan (IFSP) or an Individualized Education Program (IEP) and professionals working with children ages 3, 4 or 5 with an Individalized Education Plan (IEP). Priority is also given to persons in Southern Region IV (unless the workshop is a collaboration with another region).  Otherwise, participants are registered on a first-come, first-served basis.  The final list will be determined and confirmation letters will be emailed no later than three weeks prior to the day of the workshop or webinar.  If you do not receive a confirmation email within three week before a workshop or webinar please contact Dinnia Cooper at 618-825-3968.  Participants should understand that STAR NET does not endorse specific treatment/methods for children with disabilities. Our conferences, workshops, and webinars present a variety of current methodologies being used with young children.  

                           Our workshops are for the adult audience, unless otherwise noted.
