PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT AND LEARNING
2019-2020 PD Dates - June 30th is the final day to earn PD/EILA
2020-2021 PD Dates - May 29th is the opening window
Due to the current NTI learning environment, changes were made to existing PD/EILA procedures and processes to accommodate JCPS employees and will be re-evaluated at a later date. The expectations for employees during Non-Traditional Instruction (NTI) work days are for Certified and Instructional Classified to be working with and prepping for students. Trainings acquired during the work day are considered Job-Embedded Training (JET). The PDL Department has placed a generic PD proposal on pdCentral to note virtual submissions made during this time.
