  • SB472 Textbook Professional Development: This is a comprehensive mathematics professional development that uses the textbook as one of the resources.  It is more than“just a textbook” PD.  It focuses on topics including standards, assessment, and instructional strategies to support student achievement in mathematics. All off-track teachers who complete the full 40-hours will receive a $510.00 stipend and one salary point. There is also an option to purchase 3 semester units of university credit in place of the one salary point.  There is additional course work required for the university credit.
