Flex-PD: Converted to six hours of PD to be completed between July 1, 2020, and June 30, 2021.
This year the District is entering into year three of implementing Flexible Professional Development. This provides educators with opportunities to personalize and align PD directly with a professional goal, student learning goals, school improvement plan, or strategic plan goal. Furthermore, the PD can align directly with the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education re-licensure requirements.
To provide guidance on the six hours of PD, the District Professional Development Committee (PDC) created a framework on how to organize and complete the six hours of learning. We want to thank the PDC and the Associations for their input and feedback in the development of this framework. Our two years of implementation (2018-2020) were a great success.
