Professional Development Opportunities

Professional Development Tracking System -

District and building-based initiatives, workshops, committees and meetings are electronically submitted and posted on the professional development tracking system. The tracking system tracks clock hours and inservice credit, providing an ongoing record of individual professional development. Staff enters both district-based and outside courses/credit hours directly on their teacher relicensure forms for relicensure committee approval. All staff have their own account with a secure login and password. Reserve teachers, retirees, and Bloomington residents with a teaching license also have the ability to review classes for registration and post electronically to their ecard for relicensure. Non-Bloomington employees have the ability to review offerings, but must call (952-681-6482) to check availability and register.
