Thank you for passing this along to us again. Apologies as we did not get it the first time. I will make sure the Senator has the opportunity to see this email. I do want to let you know that the deadline to file bills for this legislative session has already passed. However, we will absolutely look in to CEU’s and keep this on our radar.
Please feel free to reach out to me directly with anything moving forward!

Hi Vanessa T., Legislative Aide to State Senator Jeff Brandes
Thank you for responding to my request so quickly. I did find the email that I sent to Senator Brandes. It explained my interest in Continuing Education Units (CEUs) for Gateways to Better Education Workshop on 1st Amendment activities regarding religion in public schools i.e. both legal and illegal. Information I think most teachers and administrators are lacking.
I have attached a html copy to that email since it wasn't found in your search. If you don't do attachments here is a link to the email in web page format. Hisways.org/about/Blog_FFPS_EduCEUs/2015-12-15Sen.BrandesFFEW.html . The email/page has a description and explanation of the features of the workshop and the states that have adopted it for CEU credit.
I would like Senator Brandes to respond to the potential for a bill to allow CEUs for this workshop for teachers and administrators in Florida. I believe that this workshop might be especially effective for faculty in failing schools and for parents with children in failing schools. Gateways also has a similar shorter seminar for parents given in the evening of the teacher's workshop. Personally I think this is a very good way to improve school morale.
