Professional Learning in SAISD focuses on adult learning that results in student achievement. The mission of professional learning is to inspire, empower and promote professional learning that advances educator and student performance. Professional learning is results-driven, standards-based and job-embedded.

Professional Learning Payroll Clarifications
For purposes of Payroll, what is Professional Learning?
The Professional Learning job code is used in TimeClock when an employee goes outside the district (to WTTC, out of town, Region XV) to a training or seminar. In this situation, the employee would not have access to a time clock, consequently the employee would complete a Leave Report. The Leave Report should indicate the time as Professional Learning. If a substitute was secured, the Leave Report will include a budget code and the substitute information.
If the training is within the district, the regular job code is used and the Leave Report form is not necessary UNLESS a substitute was secured.
