  4. Formally meet with their Local Professional Development Committee to learn about the expectations and responsibilities of professional licensure; learn about the processes and requirements of the LPDC; and consider the professional goals they will establish for their Individual Professional Development Plan

Teacher Leadership

  1. Lead a school academic initiative (e.g. day to celebrate famous people or events)
  2. Lead a school initiative to enhance the community (e.g. celebrate local veterans; collect contributions for charity; organize visits to community centers)
  3. Organize or assist in a student academic competition at the school or district level
  4. Organize and facilitate a special day to engage families and caregivers in student learning opportunities
