BACK TO SCHOOL WEEK


STAFF DEVELOPMENT


AUGUST 28 - SEPTEMBER 1


WHO:
Required for All Certified Staff; Optional for Paraprofessionals

WHAT:
During BTS week, there will be two teacher workdays, one site planned Professional Development (PD) day, and two district PD days. The two district PD days will be Tuesday, August 29th and Wednesday, August 30th.

During the district PD days, REA staff, paraprofessionals, MHPs, early childhood, and ABE staff will have their choice of learning sessions that will be taught by district staff or external presenters. All district staff will receive professional development at different times during the 2017-2018 school year.

Based on job assignments, some staff will be required to attend a certain PD session. For example, math training will be required for all teachers of mathematics. If you are required to attend a specific PD session, you will automatically be registered for the course in PDExpress. You will receive an email indicating that you have been registered for those classes so you can plan accordingly. Other sessions will be self-selected based on staff choice. This guide features elective courses for all REA members, paraprofessionals, MHPs, early childhood, and ABE staff.

Certified staff are required to attend both August 29th and 30th. Paraprofessionals are invited to select one day full or two half-day sessions.
