IPD Committee Update

The Instruction and Professional Development (IPD) Committee focuses on issues related to our professional practice. This month, at our Wednesday, February 17th meeting, we invite members to join us for two important topics:

1. Professional Development for 6-12th grade Humanities (Language Arts, Social Sciences, ELD): Humanities Department Administrators Kristina Granby and Tania McKey have reached out to us in an effort to gather educator input about what you would find most useful in professional development.

Please join us on Wednesday, February 17, 4:30 - 5:30 pm to share your thoughts with Kristina Granby, Tania McKey, and Tahrena Wicker. They will have specific questions to get your feedback on and there will also be time to discuss the questions and insight you all bring. 

The questions from Humanities Administrators will be shared ahead of time in the agenda which will be sent out to all PAT members who RSVP to attend (link below).

2. Student Assessment in CDL: As teachers, we know our students and their instructional needs. How can we come together to collect and present this data to our central office leadership team and the PPS School Board as a richer, more authentic alternative to MAP test data? We will focus on this topic from 5:30-6:30 pm.

All PAT members are welcome. Please RSVP here to join the IPD committee discussion next week.
