Our purpose is to provide all staff with comprehensive and continuous access to high-quality, engaging professional development that incorporates innovative best practice by inspiring and motivating all staff members who educate students. All professional development will be designed to advance student achievement in JISD to an exemplary status for every campus, teacher and STUDENT.
It's Professional learning!
A POWERFUL new definition of professional learning from NSDC (National Staff Development Council.)
Important Information Regarding Out-of-District Courses
We are supporting much of our policies and procedures according to the Texas Education Agency in regards to professional development. Only those CPE activities from approved registered providers will be recognized for Texas certificate renewal purposes. All Continuing Professional Education (CPE) providers must be approved and registered by the State Board for Educator Certification (SBEC).
If you have taken professional development courses with providers not approved by TEA, our office can grant you district credit. However, we cannot grant Texas SBEC CPE.
