Registering for Workshops

In most cases, registration closes 14 days prior to the start date of the workshop.

Each district has its own way of handling registrations. Please check with your bookkeeper or department chair for your district's procedure.

Approval from your district/school is required after you submit your registration. Make sure your email address is correct for the person who approves your registration. Upon approval, an email confirmation and invoice will be sent to you. Print your invoice and submit to your district office for payment.

Make sure you review the workshop description for additional costs that may be required for books and materials or for graduate credit.

If you do not receive an email confirmation, you are not registered for the class.


Payment (or a guaranteed form of payment) is due, in full, prior to the start of the workshop.

*Approving a registration constitutes an agreement to pay.*

Make checks payable to Lake County Educational Services, and mail or hand deliver to:


300 Center Drive

Suite 100

Vernon Hills, IL 60061


If using a purchase order, please list a valid purchase order number on the registration form.

Out of Lake County registrations must be paid prior to the date of the workshop.

A $20 fee will be charged for all returned checks.


Cancellations & Refunds

If a workshop is cancelled for any reason, participants will be notified prior to the date of the workshop and full refunds will be given to all who have paid, no fees are due.

Participants who notify ESD that they are dropping the class on or before the registration deadline will not be required to pay any fee.

Participants who drop after the registration deadline will be responsible for paying a processing fee, stated on the confirmation email you will receive upon approval to attend our workshops. Alternates can be sent instead for a replacement fee of $10.
