Teacher Quality Professional Development & Allocation of Funds

 At Gilbert, teachers will have the opportunity to design their own personalized professional learning plan.  Teachers may choose to use this non-contract time to complete individual plans and work on their plans over the school year.

  • Teachers have the opportunity to complete 1TQ plan for the 2022-23 school year.
  • Full-time certified staff will be paid at their individual per diem rate on their June paycheck. All final paperwork will need to be submitted.
  • For plan #1, part-time certified staff will be paid an individual per diem rate, looking at their salary from a 1.0 FTE. If an option is available for plan #2 part-time certified staff will be paid an individual per diem rate, taking into account their part-time status.
  • New learning will be shared with staff in the format and time of each teacher’s choosing.
  • District share-out will be May 30, 2023.
  • Outside hours should be representative of at least 7 hours.
  • Application forms will be accepted through March 31, 2023.  Approval/denial will be given within two weeks.
  • End of plan report will be due no later than the last teacher workday of the 2022-23 school year.

Personalized Professional Learning Plan

This can support your Individual Career Development Plan or it may be a separate learning target.  Ideas could include:

  • Book Study – incorporated into your timeline
  • New learning from a class/workshop
  • Unit creation/refinement with connections to the Iowa Core State Standards (CCSS, scope and sequence)
    • Essential Questions/Essential Learnings/Big Ideas (unit vision)
    • Assessments-summative, diagnostic, and formative
  • Integrating technology and resources into the curriculum
  • Original ideas discussed with the Director of Teaching and Learning


Teacher input will be gathered at the end of the 2022-23 school year to gauge the success of this implementation.
