COLLAB was held virtually on October 2nd and despite the fact that gathering in person was not possible in 2020, valuable collaboration still took place. Over 400 people attended the keynote speech featuring author Weston Kieschnick and even more educators participated in the job-alike gatherings. Since the event on October 2nd, over 80 educators from across the region have completed participation expectations for the “Full” COLLAB experience, earning 7.5 recertification contact hours or 0.5 continuing education graduate credits from CMU.

Attendance for those who registered for just the events on October 2nd has been finalized in Go Sign Me Up, and for those who elected to participate in the “Full” COLLAB experience, attendance will be finalized in mid-December. The NW BOCES is moving away from certificates for professional development events and is embracing a transcript model. The Colorado Department of Education welcomes BOCES transcripts for license renewal and allows educators to have one document as opposed to many certificates as evidence of professional learning hours. Please follow these steps to access your transcript:

  • Go to
  • Login at the top right hand corner of the website (remember to check the student box, and please note that as of July 2020, all usernames have been transitioned to your email address)
  • Look at Courses Box in your profile
  • Click on Unofficial Transcript Tab
  • Choose the date window you want a transcript to show (if you want everything that is in the system choose June 2011 as your start date and today as the end date) and click Filter.
  • Click print

Finally, 182 people responded to the post COLLAB survey. Brenda Brown of the North Park school district, and Lindsey Clark of the Steamboat Springs school district were the drawing winners, and will be sent Weston Kieschnick’s book, Bold School.
