SCHOOL-BASED or NON-MMSD EXTERNALLY Provided PD
Schools offering PD during non-contract hours can use the PD attendance form for PACs (during noncontract hours) below and submit to HR (instead of using the PD Catalog.) Principal signature is required. Non-MMSD external PD providers offering PD to a group of MMSD staff may want to use the PD attendance record below and submit it to the PAC Committee along with the PD agenda and times. This can replace individuals completing/submitting individual PAC forms.

MMSD PD Instructor, PACs, and Extended Contract Pay
Teachers who teach PD Courses as part of their regular duties:
Building-based teachers who teach professional development courses as part of their regular duties should plan and prepare PD courses as part of their normal roles and responsibilities. They may receive PACs only for the PD delivery during non-contract hours (not for planning time). Or if approved by a supervisor, they may be paid Extended Contract for work performed outside of the contract year.
Central Office teachers who teach professional development courses as part of their regular duties should plan, prepare, and deliver PD courses as part of their normal roles and responsibilities. Or if approved by a supervisor, they may be paid Extended Contract for work performed outside of the contract year.
Teachers who do not teach PD Courses as part of their regular duties:
Teachers who do not teach professional development courses as part of their regular duties, but who teach a professional development course, will be paid pursuant to Section III-J in the CBA, Extended Contract for each hour of instruction, plus one (1) hour of preparation for each hour of instruction, if the course is taught after the teacher's normal work day or during the summer. In lieu of compensation, a teacher may elect to receive one (1) professional advancement credit for each ten (10) hours of in-class instructional time (that occur during noncontract hours).
In order to receive credit, register and enroll just as a participant would for your course. When crediting your participants, you will also credit yourself.
