At the JCISD, delivering quality PD classes and workshops with the content you want and need is central to our mission. So we listen to what you tell us on surveys and in workshops and classes, and now offer more of what you asked for than ever before!
1. Easy Registration
Online software allows you to register and pay for any PD class 24/7/365. You'll know if you're registered for the class or on the waiting list, and we can email you quickly if a class is cancelled. All the information you need to know about classes or workshops will be available at the click of a button. You can even search for all available classes without logging-in, then log-in and sign up!
2. More Depth
You told us you want more in-depth classes offered during the summer, and less classes offered during testing periods (like Sept-Oct. for elementary and middle schools). So were offering more in-depth classes in the summer, and more time-sensitive classes from September to June keeping them as condensed as possible so you can have more time to work on classroom and other in-school activities.
3. PD at your Doorstep
You also told us that you want more workshops and building-wide PD held in your school building or district customized for your needs. We're bringing more PD right to the doorstep of many of our local schools -- customized philosophies, data-driven practices, and real-world training that districts want and need to improve their learning environment, score better on state tests, and deliver the education that our community demands!

JCISD District Improvement Facilitators Network

This District Improvement Facilitators Network is part of the beginning of a year-long support process provided by JCISD in the District Improvement Cycle.
