BLUE SPRINGS SCHOOL DISTRICT IMPLEMENTS DISCOVERY PLANIT STAFF DEVELOPMENT SYSTEM

The Blue Springs School District partnered with AllofE Solutions to implement the new Discovery PlanIt staff development system.  Discovery PlanIt is a completely customizable solution to manage staff and teacher personal development and progress.  It is used by school districts to track teacher progress for state programs such as High Quality Professional Development.  The system customizes conference, in-service, graduate course, and other forms to match a district's existing forms.  It incorporates budgeting and expense reimbursements into the submission process. 

Discovery PlanIt also includes a comprehensive workflow generator that will allow Blue Springs School District to define an approval process for each teacher's requests.  The reporting functionality allows teachers to track their own progress and administrators to track the progress of individual schools or the entire district.
