Professional Development Events

Washtenaw Intermediate School District (WISD) strongly believes that education should be a continued process of learning and sharing.

Professional development workshops offer teachers, administrators, support staff, and community members opportunities to broaden their educational horizons. Event Services is dedicated to continuously expanding staff capacity to personalize learning, differentiate instruction, and use research-based assessment and instructional strategies.

The Board of Education of the Washtenaw Intermediate School District recognizes that its school facilities belong to the school community. It is their policy to encourage the use of these facilities by the following groups and organizations whose purposes and objectives contribute to the development of the school program or the community:

  • Programs sponsored by the WISD Board, Administration and Staff
  • Constituent local school districts
  • Washtenaw County governmental units
  • Michigan Department of Education; and
  • Community groups whose purpose is related to the mission of the WISD

What are SCECHS?

Per the Michigan Department of Education:

State Continuing Education Clock Hours (SCECH) are hours earned by attending professional development activities provided by SCECH Sponsors and approved by the Michigan Department of Education (MDE). These hours can be used for renewal and progression of certificates and licenses issued by MDE.

Effective July 1, 2020 - New District Provided Professional Development (DPPD) Reporting Process

Per the Michigan Department of Education:

Effective July 1, 2020, when districts choose to allow DPPD to be used for recertification, they must enter it into the Michigan Online Educator Certification System (MOECS) as State Continuing Education Clock Hours (SCECHs). This process replaces individual educator entry and the requirement for districts to review and sign each educator’s individual DPPD form.
