Individual Initiatives

  • Professional staff members may receive up to 12 hours per year of Teacher Center credit for professional learning that takes place outside the district.  These hours are called individual initiatives and require your supervisor’s approval.  In order to be counted as an individual initiative, the professional learning must take place outside the regular work day and be aligned to the staff member’s professional learning goals. 

    Process for Obtaining Individual Initiative Credit: 
    1.    Staff member completes the Individual Initiative Request form and submits it to his/her principal electronically or in hard copy.  The form is available at the bottom of this page. 
    2.     If approved, the building principal forwards the information to the Teacher Center. 
    3.    The Teacher Center creates an activity in WinCap PD for the individual initiative and the required outside attendance forms are sent electronically to the staff member.
    4.     After the PD is completed, the staff member sends the completed outside attendance forms, or certificate of completion, to the Teacher Center in order for credit to be granted.
