Professional Development News

I will not be offering any PDs for the rest of the school year. The deadline for all PD hours is May 10th at 3:00 PM.

However, Rutherford County Instructional Dept. is hosting RuCoShift 2.0 this summer! You can choose your days, sessions, and technology level. All PD hours will count towards the 2019-2020 school year.

Bye, Bye SchoolStation!

Performance Matters

RuCo Schools are changing from SchoolStation to schedule & manage Professional Development sessions, to a program called Performance Matters. I will be trained on this program May 7th. This new program will go live on May 11th.

Keep a lookout for an email letting you know when your school will be trained!
