  2. As part of New Links membership, 3 teachers from each New Links participating school district may take 3 tele classes each for free. It does not matter if only one building in the district has videoconference equipment; all teachers in the district are eligible.

    The videoconference course must be 1 of the 3 taken, and the other two classes are chosen by the participant.

    Classes are taught in the tele at 1460 Craig Road, St. Louis, Missouri.

    Participants may also receive one hour of graduate credit from Lindenwood University for some of these classes for a fee of $60, payable to Lindenwood.
