It is creeping up…silently lurking…always in the back of our mind but never has it seemed so important.  Your palms are sweaty.  You have developed a nervous twitch.  You need to know…are you OK or is it a time of desperation?  It is…DMA DAY!

The DMA Day is fast approaching for our district.  Teachers must have their allotted hours of off-contract staff development completed.  Wondering if you have enough hours?  There is a fast, easy way for you to check.  Check out this video to see how!

Your Total DMA Hours

You should allow 1-2 weeks for your DMA hours to appear after you have completed your session and taken the survey.  In the near future, if you do not complete the survey, hours will not be awarded.  To learn how to access and complete your staff development survey, click here.
