USD 417 Professional Development Plan
The USD 417 Five Year Inservice Plan allows USD 417 to design and implement a professional development plan which provides for licensure renewal of our licensed district employees and licensed district community members. The Kansas State Board of Education approved the USD 417 Five Year Inservice Plan, effective 8/1/13-7/31/18, at their September, 2013 meeting.
Anyone employed by the district or who works or lives within the district may file an Individual Professional Development Plan. Current licensed district staff enroll in the USD 417 Professional Development Plan each school year through the online system Frontline Professional Growth (FPG). FPG is the professional development management system used by USD 417. Community members should contact PDC Chair, Kelly Gentry, at the district office for information on becoming members of FPG.
The Professional Development Activity Plan listed below outlines the approved activities which will be sponsored by our district and by each building. Licensure points will be awarded based on attendance at these activities. For instructions on how to receive points for book studies or for supervising a student teacher, please see FAQ.
Schedules of specific topics for each staff development day are available upon request.
