My Learning Plan (MLP)


This application facilitates and streamlines planning, managing, tracking and evaluating the effectiveness of your professional learning opportunities. Employees request PD activities, send them for approval, manage their own portfolios and transcripts. Administrators approve requests, review teacher plans and assist the employee in fulfilling his PD obligations. MLP allows for catalogs of district and external coursework, discussion forums, bulletin boards, professional learning communities and targeted collaboration.
