PDP’s: Your Time to Shine

April 24th, 2015 | Posted by Webmaster in Evaluation | HowTo | PD - (Comments Off on PDP’s: Your Time to Shine)

Summ Eval

 

As May quickly approaches, it is getting closer to PDP time. Your PDP, or Individualized Professional Development Plan, is an integral part of your work here at CCTS. Your PDP, and the information that YOU put into your PDP will professional practice in the next subsequent year.

Your PDP is based on your evaluation and should be created based on how your formal and informal evaluations went during this school year. However, you have the power to write, with the consultation of your department supervisor, your professional goals for the following school year. This means: you can have a real impact on the PD that you attend in the following year. We know this is important to you, so it is important to us!

Please contact your association rep if you would like more information about your PDP.

SGO’s – They’re baacccck!

Data Collection

 

Welcome back from Spring Break, we hope you had a great time. But, it’s time to get back to reality!

You may recall from last year’s SGO process, that the second “half” of the Student Growth Objective process takes place towards the end of the 3rd marking period. As it stands right now, our completed SGOs are due to your respective supervisors before May 1, 2015. 

If you have not planned to, you should begin to plan and implement your “post-assessments,” so that you may collect and report the data prior to the due date. the NJDOE has many resources  to support the SGO process; they are available here. If you have further questions regarding this process, please contact your association rep.
