Professional Development Forms for Salary Step Advancement

Read the complete Step Advancement Manual below, but be advised that this dates back to 2003 as still found on the DACE website. It will presumably be updated when the procedures for the new 5th Step are finalized.
 
From the manual: 
Staff Development activities include but are not limited to the following:
1. Attendance at Conferences
2. Attendance at Workshops
3. Attendance at Seminars
4. Level I Coursework
5. Level II Coursework
6. Development of Course Outlines
7. Evaluation of Educational Materials
8. Presentation of a Demonstration Lesson for New Teachers
9. Peer Observations for Teachers on Step A
10. Peer Observations for Teachers on Step B
11. Presentation of a Workshop
12. Co-Presentation of a Workshop
All other Staff Development activities, such as grant writing, research, innovation of
technology, et cetera, must be pre-approved by the Division Superintendent or his/her designee.
 
Read the complete manual (2003) edition for more specifics.
Professional Development Forms: CA, CP, CW, D, & O.  Use these forms to request Salary Step Advancement hours. They need to be signed by the Principal before the endeavor is completed as a "plan" for acquiring Professional Development Hours, and then AGAIN after the endeavor has been completed (with evidence).
 
CA: for conference, workshop, and seminar attendance
CP: for presenting a workshop at a conference, workshop and seminar 
CW: for college coursework
D: for presenting a demonstration lesson to other teachers
O: for peer observations
