Standards/Protocol

The Professional Development System Evaluation Protocol contains an overall philosophy and approach to professional learning that is based on and drawn from the National Staff Development Council’s (NSDC) new definition of professional learning and supporting research and documentation. 

The Professional Development System Evaluation Protocol is designed for use by:

  • The Florida Department of Education through site visits to districts to form state-wide conclusions on the quality of professional development in the state.
  • District staff through site visits to schools to form district-wide conclusions on the quality of professional development in the district.
  • School staff and School Advisory Councils as a self-check on the quality of professional development in the school.

The protocol standards reflect the planning, learning, implementing, and evaluating of school district professional development at three levels:

  • Faculty Level
  • School Level
  • District Level
