Cautionary Notice: As added and amended by SBX3 4 (Ch. 12, Third Extraordinary Session, Statutes of 2009) and ABX4 2 (Ch. 2, Fourth Extraordinary Session, Statutes of 2009), Education Code 42605 grants district flexibility in "Tier 3" categorical programs. The Vista Unified School District has accepted this flexibility and thus is deemed in compliance with the statutory or regulatory program and funding requirements for these programs for the 2008-2009 through 2012-2013 fiscal years. As a result, the district may temporarily suspend certain provisions of the following policy or regulation that reflect these requirements. For further information, please contact the Superintendent or designee.
The Board of Education recognizes that professional development opportunities enhance employee effectiveness and contribute to personal growth. Staff development for management, supervisory and confidential personnel shall be designed to guide instructional improvement, build leadership skills, and enhance overall management efficiency.
The Superintendent or designee may develop a plan for administrator support and development activities based on a systematic assessment of the needs of district students and staff and aligned to the district's vision and goals. The Board desires that all administrators participate in planning activities that are pertinent to their specific areas of responsibility.
Within budget parameters, the Superintendent or designee may approve participation in activities that will benefit individual administrators and enhance their contributions to the district.
The Superintendent or designee shall evaluate the benefit to staff and students of professional development activities.
