Additional Graduate Credit Options
School districts often have their own partnerships with local colleges and universities where many of the district's teachers pursue graduate degrees. Scholastic RED has established additional accreditation partnerships with colleges and universities in connection with RED district implementations.

Graduate Credit for Scholastic RED Professional Development Courses
Effective professional development requires that teachers reflect on their learning and refine their teaching based on that reflection. Teachers enrolled in Scholastic RED courses study and apply the research-based components of effective reading instruction and reading strategies. Over a period of several weeks, teachers implement and refine these strategies as they work towards transforming their online coursework into classroom practice.
Participants applying for graduate credit for RED courses must adhere to the following requirements:
- Scholastic RED participants will be allowed to enroll in and earn graduate credit for only two Scholastic RED courses per semester/quarter (corresponding to university Fall (September-December), Winter/Spring (January-May), and Summer (June-August) semesters/quarters).
- Each RED course must be completed in no
fewer than 5 weeks and no more than 15 weeks.
- Participants must register for graduate credit within 10 days of logging-in to their Scholastic RED course.
Graduate credit requirements and policies may vary by university. Check with the university where you are applying for graduate credit to ensure that you meet its requirements.
