Professional Learning and My Learning Plan

The Lebanon School District is transitioning, over a three year period, to full implementation of My Learning Plan, an online professional development management system: 
  • New staff and those starting a new certification cycle July 2016 will begin using MLP during 2016/2017 school year. Access My Learning Plan here.
  • Those in the third year of their certification cycle will continue using the existing forms through 2016/2017 and will move to MLP July 2017. You can also opt to move to MLP at any time.
  • Those in the second year of their certification cycle can continue using the existing forms through 2017/2018 and will move to MLP July 2018. You can also opt to move to MLP at any time.
  • See My Learning Plan Tutorials under Resources tab
