1. How professional development gets recorded in KALPA:

The majority of all activities are created and managed by admin and chairs/leads in the district.  An activity gets created by an administrator.  They know who should be attending the activity so they pre-register the participants in the workshop.  Participants are asked to complete a survey.  Once the activity is completed the administrator of the activity marks the activity TAKEN  and credit appears in the participant’s portfolio.

 

2.  Signing up for Professional Development in the District Catalog. 

Occasionally you will be instructed to access the district catalog in order to register for specific professional development workshop(s).  Enter the catalog, search for the event or actual activity, choose the activity and click “REGISTER”.  Once the activity is marked TAKEN credit appears in the participant’s portfolio.

 

3.  SPECIAL REQUEST

This process is used when a user has attended a workshop OUTSIDE the district and needs to get it logged in the portfolio, or is making up credit for a MISSED CONTRACT DAY. After completion of the activity, fill in the and submit the SPECIAL REQUEST.  Depending on the circumstances, the request will be for one of these requirements:

FLEX DAY CREDIT
MAKE-UP for MISSED CONTRACT
ADDITIONAL PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT

The request goes to the building principal for approval.  The building principal may require the user to upload verification of attendance such as a certificate, attendance records, program agenda, etc.  Upon approval of the request, the credit will be added to the user’s portfolio. DO NOT submit a special request for an activity that is already in the catalog.    

WE PULL REPORTS FROM THE COOP AND ENTER THOSE RECORDS SO DO NOT ENTER SPECIAL REQUESTS FOR WORKSHOPS FROM THE COOP
