• As a teacher new to Alief, we are providing a set of professional development opportunities designed just for you. Alief U is designed to assist you in: transitioning to a new job, providing a forum for meeting other teachers in your content area, and introducing you to district personnel who are here to help you succeed.
    A new calendar was adopted by the Alief school board on May 27, 2020. The dates for the Alief U Summer Institute are July 23-24 and July 27-28. Alief U Undergraduate Studies is your first year of induction. A typical year of induction is 35 hours of prescribed professional development. Due to the COVID-19 interruption and regulations, the number of hours may decrease and our learning platform will be a combination of a traditional face-to-face and virtual.
    Below is an outline of your Alief U Summer Institute coursework:
    A thinking map with dates for Alief U undergraduates.  
    When we are closer to the Alief U Summer Institute start date, and we have additional guidance from state and local authorities, your campus administration will send you more detailed information.
    If you have questions about your required professional development hours, please contact Patricia Grady at patricia.grady@aliefisd.net
