  • *** New DPPD Reporting Process Resources beginning July 1, 2020, when districts choose to allow DPPD to be used for recertification, they must enter it into the Michigan Online Educator Certification System (MOECS) as State Continuing Education Clock Hours (SCECHs).  This process replaces individual educator entry and the requirement for districts to review and sign each educator's individual DPPD form.  

    After district coordinator submits SCECHs into MOECS a survey is automatically generated through MOECS after submission.  Educator must complete SCECH Survey before SCECHs are awarded to educator.  After survey completion, SCECHs will be recorded in the educator's professional learning account in MOECS.

    You have 30 days after you attend the training to complete the MOECS Survey otherwise you may forfeit your SCECH credits

Staff Development

  • The Basics

    All of the websites and documents can be confusing. Hopefully, the following information will help clarify what each site or document represents and its purpose.

     

    Staff Development Requirements

    All certified staff are required to attend 5 days (30 hours) of staff development each school year. In addition, probationary teachers need to attend another 15 days (90 hours) within the first three years of employment

    The district provides opportunities to complete each of these requirements. This 2021-2022 school year, in August, all certified staff and paraprofessionals should attend professional development days starting Tuesday, August 24, EdCamp, August 25, and August 26, PLC PD. Another professional development day is November 2,2021, Proficiency Scale Work.

    School improvement days (LSIP) -Teachers participate in a hour meeting at the end of a regular work day.  LSIP dates are 10/26,11/16,12/7/2021,1/11/2022, 2/8,3/15,4/12 and 5/10/2022.

    2021-2022 Scheduled Late Start Days are 10/20/2021, 12/01/21,2/02/2022,3/09/2022,4/13/2022, and 5/04/2022.  

     

     Additional time for probationary staff can be completed through new teacher meetings, mentor meetings, new teacher trainings and other district required activities.

     

    Employee Web

    Employee Web was setup for staff members to see their personal information, including certification and degrees, attendance, payroll history and tax information. This is also the site to enter your staff development activity. New certified staff that have less than three years teaching experience are required to enter any professional development in which they have participated by December 1 and May 2 of each school year. All of the above mentioned activities should be entered, as well as any other professional development workshops attended during the year. From this database, a report is generated for the State of Michigan REP to verify completion of the required professional development. 

    Employee Web - Your ID is a six digit number that is assigned. Your PIN is your first and last initial and the last four numbers of your social security number unless you have changed it.
