Professional Development

PD Request process:

  1. PD requests are considered for:
    • External professional development  or conference

    • PLC collaboration during school day

  2. For PD requests requiring more than 3 subs, check the Professional Development Calendar on the district website for availability of date.  Dates stating “No More Subs” may not be requested. Also Monday and Fridays are not allowed.  If the dates are available, you will need to complete the district PD online request form, to be placed on the calendar.  See Principal if requesting special exception.

  3. Once a date has been selected, complete the BHS PD Request form.

  4. External PD requests will be approved by School Advisory Council which is held the second Wednesday of every month except in December. Please submit PD requests by Monday prior to the scheduled SAC meeting.

    • Internal PD requests will be reviewed by PD Team (PD Coordinator, Principal, Assistant Principals, and ITC) each Tuesday.

  5. Once approval has been received via email, submit Absence sheet for pre-approval to Administrative Assistant to the Principal and enter “school business” into AESOP. The administrative office will enter your request on District calendar. Please notify principal and Administrative Assistant if there is a change.

  6. Directions for external professional development/conferences are outlined on PD Request form.
