"badging in and badging out" process for district-wide professional development
Thank you again for talking things through with me today on the "badging in and badging out" process for district-wide professional development in lieu of paper sign in sheets for paraprofessionals (and teachers) this year.
The district-wide PD runs between Aug. 13 and Aug 16, though paraprofessionals report on Aug. 14.
I confirmed with curriculum that PD days run from 8:30-3:30 and include an hour lunch.
The big message, which I'd greatly appreciate your relaying to your members tomorrow, is that on the days paraprofessionals been asked to report for district-wide professional development, they need to "badge in" and "badge out" -- even if they are not at their "home" building. This is how we will mark attendance.
Also, if you could please encourage paraprofessionals to register for the district-wide PD days using the link and course number below, that would be great. By registering, they can receive professional development course credit for attending--which is useful for their professional growth and in the case that any paraprofessionals might like to pursue a career in teaching one day.
Here is the link to login and register for the course: https:// mayerson.truenorthlogic.com/U/P/Channel/-/Guest/Login
And here is the course number: 12522.17477
Thank you, Emily! Please let me know if you need more information.
Oh, and as you and I discussed, we will have a back up plan (paper sign in) for those who have not yet received a district badge.
