Michigan College Access Network is proud to partner with Xello to host a new series of professional development webinars for K-12 educators in Michigan. Together with Xello, a modern college, career, and future readiness software, we are excited to offer this opportunity to our network.

Starting in October, we will be co-hosting a free, eight-part monthly webinar series that will focus on timely topics in K-12 education and postsecondary planning. You don't need to commit to the whole series; register for the topics that fit your interests and schedule. Earn SCECHs while learning how to use Xello to meet Michigan's Career Development Program requirements and help your students build their Educational Development Plans.

State Continuing Education Clock Hours (SCECH)

All webinars will be submitted for one SCECH in College Preparation & Selection or Career Exploration. Additional details will be provided as sessions are submitted and approved by MDE.
