08-13-2013 Regular School Board Meeting
Agenda Item #33


Title
Master Inservice Plan 2013-14

Discussion

Florida Statute 1012.98 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.  All inservice activities must be based on the MIP and comply with State Board of Education Rule 6A-5.071, FAC, Master Inservice Plan Requirements.  Components in the MIP are reviewed and updated by the Professional Development Council.  Each component is listed as a course in the Electronic Registrar Online (ERO) inservice management system.  The district received a rating of "4" (the highest possible rating) in our most recent Professional Development Protocol Review on Standard 3.1.2, Professional Development System; this indicates that training activities in our Professional Development System are focused on targeted content standards and research-based professional practices. 

The index of components and a copy of the inservice rules and procedures for Brevard County within the state system (Section 1 of the MIP) are attached.



Recommendation
Approve the Master Inservice Plan (MIP) for Brevard Public Schools for 2013-14.
