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.
