Professional Development System Evaluation Protocol

Professional Development System Evaluation Protocol

Overview

Through a series of legislative acts in the late 1990s and early part of the 21st century, the Florida Legislature required the Department of Education to develop a system for evaluating the quality of district professional learning systems. Pursuant to those requirements stipulated in 1012.98 – School Community Professional Development Act (F.S.) and legislative proviso language, the Department generated the Professional Development System Evaluation Protocol. By June of 2009, the Department concluded two cycles of reviews of all 67 school districts and four university research schools. The 2009-10 school year was devoted to a complete review and revision of the system in preparation for Third Cycle implementation. The Third Cycle system is described in a separate document entitled Professional Development System Evaluation Protocol: Protocol System, Third Cycle.
