Professional Development (SCECHs)
Our District will be offering both traditional and non-traditional District sponsored professional development. Traditional professional development will include our Districtwide full day professional development programs which have been scheduled in the 2021-22 District Calendar:
- Wednesday, August 25, 2021
- Thursday, August 26, 2021
- Friday, June 3, 2022
These (3) full day programs will be complemented by the building-level sponsorship of a series of (1) hour sessions that will be scheduled and hosted by the respective building principals to round out the remaining required professional development hours that the District is required to provide. Please reference the Professional Development Calendar provided in the right column.

SCECH Earning Opportunities
Due to absences, cancellations or attendance issues, staff can fall off the pace for earning adequate SCECHs to renew professional certificates. The Michigan Department of Education (MDE) has compiled and maintains a list of free or low cost professional development opportunities that staff can independently pursue to earn SCECH’s. Please reference the following linked document below:
