2014-15 Additions Individual Book Study option Individuals can now file a plan for a book study that is not associated with their building or district. Points are awarded by the number of chapters read. A 3-5 sentence chapter summary is required and will be uploaded on MLP before points are awarded.
Other Important Information to Know: If you are attending a workshop and presenting you must file 2 plans- 1 for Professional Education and 1 for Service to the Profession with the number of hours for each divided accordingly For classes that do not offer college credit, use the following to determine points: One month course equals 1 college credit or 20 points, two month course equals 2 college credits or 40 points, three months or more is equal to 3 college credits or 60 points. Make sure to look in the handbook for answers to your questions. The handbook can be found in the file library on MyLearningPlan. If you still need help try talking to your building representative or call the BOE Staff Development Office for assistance.
File a Leave form any time you are leaving your building for professional development. (This online leave form replaces the paper version teachers used to file for professional development.) If you are attending something outside your building or the district in which a plan has not been filed for you, you also need to file an Individual Knowledge Plan. Make sure you have set a new Individual Growth Plan before checking out at the end of each school year in May!!!! You are REQUIRED through state licensure statute to have an active Individual Growth Plan on file EACH YEAR.
