08-10-10 Regular School Board Meeting
Agenda Item #25


Title
Master Inservice Plan

Discussion
Florida Statute 1012.98(4)(b)4 requires that the district's professional development system include a Master Inservice Plan (MIP) that is updated annually and approved by the School Board, submitting verification of approval to the Commissioner of Education by October 1 annually.  All inservice activities must be based on the Master Inservice Plan and comply with State Board of Education Rule 6A-5.071, Master Inservice Plan Requirements.  Components in the MIP are reviewed and updated by district staff and the Professional Development Council.  Each component is listed as a course in the Electronic Registrar Online (ERO) inservice management system.  The district received a score of "4", the highest rating, in our most recent Professional Development Protocol Review on Standard 3.1.3, Content; this indicates that training activities in our Professional Development System are focused on the content areas specified in F.S. 1012.98.  The index of components and a copy of the inservice rules and procedures (Section 1 of the MIP) for Brevard County are attached.

Recommendation
Approve the Master Inservice Plan (MIP) for Brevard Public Schools for 2010-11.
