Creating Your Course

Great Things

If you're thinking about offering a Tech Prep course, more than likely, the class you're currently teaching is a lot like the UAS course. Creating your course has to be the most daunting of all tasks at the district level. There's nothing to worry about. Promise.  We're here to help you.

If you haven't asked for the most current syllabus do that first.  Send me a syllabus

After reviewing our syllabus you can decide how the material can be taught within the time frame of your semester.  There are a couple of items to keep in mind.

  • All material included in the UAS syllabus must be taught with the same rigor in your classroom. You can add to but you can take away from our syllabus. Don't take it personally, no falculty member can change the syllabus without going through the Course Approval Process.
  • You have flexibility when determining pacing, but your course needs to be based on clock hours, not class periods. Depending on the course you may have to account for Lecture/Lab clock hours. This document explains in detail how it works.

When all else fails, contact the Tech Prep Regional Coordinator  HELP. 

We can email information, talk through the problem on the phone, or we can meet with you personally, at your location, to walk you through step by step.



Assigning GradesSuccess


As a UAS instructor, you are required to record a grade for each student within 5 days of the last session of class.

  1. You must assign letter grades based on UAS Grading Policy
  2. Every student must have a grade.
  3. No Tech Prep student can be given a grade of an incomplete, a drop, or a withdrawal.
  4. If a student registered, but failed to complete the course due to family emergency, moving out of the district, etc. a grade of "NB" can be given. A date of last attendance must be recorded.

The fastest and easiest way to record grades with UAS is by logging into your account with your user name and password.

If you would like to do things the old fashion way, you can print out your class roster, record the grade by hand, sign the documents, and then either scan/email or fax the document back to the Tech Prep Regional Coordinator.



Tech Prep Conflict of Interest Policy   Take a Chance


If you have a family member in your class UAS needs to know.

Living in small communities, we will at times have family members as students in our classrooms. It really can't be avoided. The Conflict of Interest Policy discusses this issue. What it comes down to is, we need to know.
