Calendar and Registration System:

Professional Development (PD) delivers rigorous, research-based, field-tested learning experiences, programs, and resources for teachers, principals, administrators, and support personnel in order to increase student achievement.

Components focus on student achievement and school improvement by addressing direct instructional needs and/or knowledge, attitudes, skills, aspirations, and behaviors to support continuous improvement. These opportunities help staff succeed in their job, stay current on latest research in their field, and prepare for advancement.

How to use the system:
The Menu and Registration System will assist in going through the entire process of finding, registering and recording your professional development courses. It's designed to serve all M-DCPS employees: teachers, administrators, and non-instructional staff. 

Logging into the Menu and Registration System:

Using your web browser, go to the Menu and Registration System web site:

Once all records are received and the PD Data Center enters the attendance and completion information in the system, the status will be revised.
