Kenwood University Professional Development Form

Becoming Learners

To Become Better Teachers

 

We believe becoming stronger teachers and learners will support our students’ achievement.  Improvement happens through reflection and intentional learning.  Kenwood University (KU) is focused on the impact of our staff's professional learning to benefit our school community. Each faculty member is expected to complete 4, 45 minute to 1 hour KU professional development PD “offerings” as part of their professional growth this year.  These must be completed prior to May, 2015, and can be accomplished on the Monday’s designated for PD on our school calendar. Print a copy of this form.  Select 4 PD offerings (place a check mark in the PD Offerings Box) you intend to complete this school year and return to the STAT teacher no later than Monday, January 11. Feel free to choose more than 4! Keep a copy for your own records. You will use your copy as you actually complete each PD offering. Always have the person in charge of the PD (see each description) initial and date the box of the actual course offering you completed. You will turn this initialed form into your Department Chair or Administrator by May 1, 2015. This will also give you opportunities to highlight your work in Domain 4, but is not a requirement for Domain 4. The STAT teacher will keep records of attendance at PD Offerings.
