Professional Development



We strongly believe that education should be a continued process for learning, sharing and growth.  Professional development workshops have been designed to offer teachers, administrators and support staff the opportunity to broaden their educational horizons.

Teacher Certification and SCECHs

State Continuing Education Clock Hours (SCECHs) can be used to renew a multitude of certificates and offer a low-cost alternative to college credit. 

Check out the pamphlet for information about Teacher Certification and answers to common questions.

The most recent changes to teacher certification involve how District-Provided Professional Development (DPPD) hours are issued. Starting July 1, 2020, all DPPD hours must be issued as SCECHs through an approved SCECH Sponsor. The MAISD is working directly with all public school districts in the county to make this change as seamless as possible.
