Personalized Learning Institute moved to campus level for secondary teachers

2014 July 30
by HISD Communications

The three-day Personalized Learning Institute (PLI) that was originally scheduled in August has been redirected to the campus level for all secondary teachers.

Instead of attending PLI, middle- and high-school teachers will now spend this time with their colleagues and leadership teams on campus-based professional development.

The PLI for secondary teachers was originally scheduled for Aug. 12–14 and Aug. 18–20. If you are a secondary teacher who has not yet received an email with instructions on where to report during the time you would have spent at the PLI, please contact your principal for details.

Please note that this modification does not affect elementary schools or elementary teachers.

    I am concerned about the Professional Development training. I have AP training on August 12-14 at another site and have PowerUp training (Phase 2) on those same days at my home school. This affects about 1/3 of the faculty at my school. Why are the training overlapping? Thank you.

      I checked with Beatriz Arnillas, and she said that unfortunately, the overlap was unavoidable. But there’s good news: she also said that to mitigate the problem, NetSync (the laptop provider) would leave devices in the schools, and her instructional technicians would provide ad hoc orientation to all teachers who missed deployment due to AP training. Hope this helps!
