Registration to Open for Summer Professional Development on April 3
Continuing Professional Development (CPD) courses for the summer semester 2017 are available for registration through the Professional Development Online (PDO) system. The summer semester runs from mid-June 2017 through August 2017. The classes will be released at 8:30 a.m. on Monday, April 3. Teachers have priority registration in all CPD courses. Support professional staff and substitute teachers may register on PDO for CPD courses but will be considered on a space-available basis.
The CPD registration fee will be assessed to permanent employees via payroll deductions after the successful completion of the course. Employees with outstanding balances must clear their accounts before registering for new classes. Employees on long-term leave should contact the CPD office to make payment arrangements.
For 12-month employees:
If you are a 12-month employee and are planning to take MSDE/CPD courses during the duty day for credit, provide a copy of your approved annual or personal leave slip to the CPD Registrar. This information is requested for auditing purposes only. If you do not want to receive credit for MSDE/CPD courses, let the CPD Registrar know and the certification unit will be notified of your decline of credit. This will be noted in your certification file for future reference.
Per the Leave Unit, all 12-month employees are required to use personal or annual leave to attend any MSDE/CPD course during the duty day.
