SDE Integrated Professional Development Modules

Through a collaborative effort of SDE staff, ISEE Navigators, district leaders and Discovery Education we have developed the Integrated Professional Development Modules which are available for use by all Idaho school districts. The SDE has worked closely with Discovery Education to develop these training modules for administrators that encompass and integrate the Idaho Core, Next Generation Assessments, and Digital Content, all supported by Data Driven Instructional Practices and the educational ties between them all. For more detailed information on the Integrated Professional Development Modules please contact Alex Macdonald at amacdonald@sde.idaho.gov.
