Registration limit for this course is 20 participants. Once that limit is reached, the KCM will be unable to accept any additional participants. 

Because participants must register during the 2022-23 fiscal school year, but this course meets during the 2023-24 fiscal school year, the KCM can change the date on any invoice if needed to be July 3, 2023. Please email the KCM at or call us at 859-572-7690 if you need that change made.  

The $600 registration fee is non-refundable once materials are ordered. If you register and then become unable to attend for any reason, your school or district may send someone else to attend in your place, keeping in mind that the same person must attend all 8 virtual sessions  Regardless of whether or not a replacement is sent, the course invoice will still need to be paid.
