Professional Development

Our Commitment

The Department of Curriculum and Instruction is committed to the ongoing professional support and growth of our teachers. Teachers working in Bonneville Joint School District 93 are provided with rich professional development opportunities, including workshops, collaboration, and mentoring in an effort to enable all students to meet or exceed academic standards.    

Non-employees are eligible to participate in professional development.  The fee for non-employees is $100 per class, plus the cost per credit.

Upcoming Professional Development Courses


Signing Up for a Class

Participants may sign up for classes via email.  There must be a minimum of twelve (12) participants to hold a class. Once the minimum participation has been met, the Department of Curriculum and Instruction will register the course with a sponsoring university.   

Earning Credit

Attendees are responsible for registering online with the sponsoring university if they wish to earn credit for a professional development course.  Please register on or before the first day of class.  You will not be able to register for credit once the class has ended.

For renewal purposes, the applicant must meet current State Board of Education rule and Idaho statutory renewal requirements.  All certificated personnel are required to complete at least six (6) semester credit hours or the equivalent within the five (5)-year period of validity of the certificate being renewed. 

In-Service Hours
