Catalog

This year will see some changes to the WNY Teacher Center catalog.  We will be moving away from the old number system and will now catalog our classes using new categories.  Please see the chart listing below. 

Courses are available to teachers from our center as well as outsiders.

  • Teachers from outside our component districts will be charged a $10 per hour fee.
ALL TEACHERS MUST SIGN UP FOR CLASSES USING THE CALENDAR FOUND ON THIS WEBSITE. YOU ARE NOT REGISTERED UNTIL YOU DO THAT.
 
All participants, including Clarence, Depew, and Lancaster, teachers, must follow their district's registration procedure. Please follow the usual workshop or conference request routine.
