    Professional Learning Platform

     

    Marion County Public Schools utilizes True North Logic (TNL) as the Professional Learning Platform. TNL streamlines the process of searching and signing up for professional learning opportunities so educators can chart their professional growth. It includes the District Professional Learning Catalog (PLC) which identifies the educational training programs or components of professional learning that may generate inservice points toward recertification or add-on certification.

     

    Additionally, reporting features in TNL track all professional development activities offered throughout the district, as well as participant attendance. The data gathered by the TNL Platform is utilized by the site-based and district administrative teams to consistently analyze the effectiveness and impact of any professional learning activity offered.   

     


    Professional Learning Catalog

     

    Marion County Public Schools affirms that all its employees are valuable members of the District’s educational community. 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 are available on a continual basis.

     

    The Professional Learning Catalog (PLC) is a catalog of courses (components) that has been approved by the Marion County Public School Board and the Florida Department of Education for use by teachers, administrators, and non-instructional personnel. 

     

    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 PLC catalog consists of 187 components that encompass the foundation for most of the professional development that takes place in Marion County Public Schools. Each component specifies a maximum number of inservice points that can be awarded to participants upon successful completion of coursework, and consists of the following:

    Professional Development Protocol  

    All courses are built upon components and include specific objectives to meet designated goal(s), and inservice points are determined based on the number and complexity of the objectives to be taught.  Courses designed from these components are listed in TNL.
