New Jersey Department of Education

School and District Professional Development Planning

Professional development regulations specify requirements for school and district PD planning. In an effort to support districts, the Department is providing guidance and optional templates that outline the requirements of each type of plan, with instructions for developing the plan and sample populated plans for illustrative purposes only. Districts may choose to use these templates or may create PDPs of their own that fulfill all statutory requirements.
