STUDENTS PARENTS EMPLOYEES COMMUNITY
Master Plan for In-service Education


   

Miami-Dade County Public Schools takes the position that all of its employees are valuable members of the District's educational community. In order to be effective and efficient in fulfilling job-related requirements and responsibilities, as well as updating administrative, professional, and technical knowledge and skills, it is essential that opportunities for high-quality professional development be available on a continual basis.

The Master Plan for In-service Education (2009-2014) is a catalog of courses (components) that has been approved by the Miami-Dade County Public School Board and the Florida Department of Education for use by teachers, administrators, and non-instructional personnel, and is designed to meet this purpose. 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.

The 2009-2014 Plan consists of 208 components that comprise the foundation for the majority of professional development that takes place in Miami-Dade County Public Schools. Each component specifies a maximum number of Master Plan Points (in most cases 120) that can be awarded upon successful course completion and consists of a general objective, specific objectives, activities, follow-up (application), and evaluation criteria to determine mastery of the component objectives. All courses are built upon components and include specific objectives to meet a designated goal(s), with Master Plan Points determined based upon the number and complexity of the objectives to be taught. Courses designed from these components are listed on the District's Professional Development Menu & Registration System. These professional development courses may be completed to satisfy requirements for renewal of a Florida professional educator's certificate; to fulfill identified requirements for the Individual Professional Development Plan (IPDP) or for documentation for the goal setting standard with Instructional Performance Evaluation and Growth System (IPEGS); to meet specific administrative and/or technical program requirements; to meet specific stipend eligibility requirements; or for general professional growth.

Each component is identified by a unique seven-digit component number that is composed of three groups of numbers. The first position, a single number, is the function number. The second position, a three-digit number, identifies the principal subject area upon which the component focuses. Finally, the third position, also a three-digit number, represents the sequential number of that component for all within the same function and focus areas. Please see below under Understanding the Component Number for a detailed classification of the function and focus areas.

Components will be searchable from the Professional Development Menu & Registration System through the "Help" screen located on the blue menu section on the left side of the opening page. Please refer to this part of the website to search and read the full text of specific components.

The following are a listing of the component numbers in the 2009-2014 Master In-service Plan:
