Current Offerings

**************************************************************

Please check this site often for updates on our programs.

As of July 1, 2012, the OWL Teacher Center will be collecting fees for courses and workshops due to severe cuts in our funding. One credit courses will be $35, 2 credits $70, and 3 credits $95. Professional circles will also be $35. Workshop fees will vary according to number of hours. There will be a $50 service charge for graduate courses in addition to the tuition paid to the college.
We hope that you understand the impact of losing 75% of our funding for 2013, and that these fees will help sustain us in these very difficult times.

To request SAS Curriculum Pathways training for groups of teachers, please email the director at owlcenter@lindenhurstschools.org.
