JSR Staff Professional Development: Home

Resources, timelines and forms to help you with your re-certification.

Professional Development

Your PD Folder is your portfolio which represents you as a professional and your contributions to your school. While the SAU offers a wide range of professional development opportunities, you are strongly encouraged to also pursue outside offerings to create a diverse portfolio and be able to bring innovative ideas to your school and to your colleagues.

The folder will be reviewed by your Administrator as well and your Superintendent and the NH Dept of Education - make sure it represents you and your accomplishments well.
