18What are ‘Demographics?’ In the First State of Delaware, all educators are given a Position based on PHRST and the educator’s district or charter school’s designation.This Position is connected to the SingleSignOn, and therefore to DEEDS and the PDMS.In the PDMS, the Position becomes the educator’s ‘demographic’.Clusters have been approved for participants who meet various ‘demographics’.Not all professional development opportunities will be demographically limited.
19PDMS Demographics…..Required = Professional development that an educator is mandated to attend ~ no clusters fit this category.Recommended = Professional development opportunities that fit within an educator’s demographic, e.g., Administrator, Teacher, Pupil Support, etc.Restricted = This professional development opportunity is only available for registration by educators who meet the approved demographic(s).
20Upon selecting the recommended professional development, Zack will have the ability to view the cluster, contact the Instructor and/or register.
21Upon viewing the Course Catalog page: Read the Description and Category to determine if the professional development meets your professional goals, your School Success Plan and/or the District Strategic Plan.Be sure you have met the Prerequisites (if any) as well.
