Course Options
The calendars below include tentative "sync point" dates for the CFF courses for both first and second year CFF teachers. Please note that discussion dates are subject to change. All learners must reach designated "sync points" before any teacher will be released to the next unit.

All CFF teachers will recieve four days of "flex-time" to compensate for the thirty hours required for the course. You may use these dates to work on coursework or for your liesure. These dates will be:
  • Jan 19th (all day)
  • Jan 26th (1/2 day afternoon)
  • April 13th (all day)
  • Both final days (2 x 1/2 days)
  • Prom Day (1/2 day)

Please review the two options and decided which pacing best suits your needs.
