Alief teacher contracts require participation in a three year induction program. This program is known as Alief U.
Year 1 induction = Alief U Undergraduate Studies
Year 2 induction = Alief U Graduate Studies
year 3 induction = Alief U Continuing Education
Each year of induction is 35 hours of prescribed professional development. If you attended the Virtual Alief U 2020 Summer Institute, you earned up to 24 hours of district professional development credit, depending on your teaching assignment.
Due to the steep learning curve associated with virtual and concurrent teaching, the district has decided that teachers who attended the Virtual Alief U 2020 Summer Institute, have completed their professional development expectations for the 2020-2021 school year.
If you did not attend the Virtual Alief U 2020 Summer Institute, please check with your campus administrator about your professional development training requirements for the 2020-2021 school year.
In March/April 2021, the professional development expectations for the 2021-2022 school year - Alief U Graduate Studies (year 2 induction) - will be sent to you via email.
