Alabama Council for Leadership Development (ACLD)
Trying to find ACLD approved professional studies?
The ACLD’s Instructional Leadership Professional Study (PS) Application is the process designed to ensure the development, delivery, and evaluation of quality professional study opportunities for Alabama’s instructional leaders. As with any new program or initiative, it may be necessary to revise the process at some point during the initial application cycle. An application may be reviewed and approved for participants to earn a Professional Learning Unit (PLU). During yearly review of the approved professional study, the ACLD reserves the right to amend or withhold approved status. Reasons for amending or withholding approval may include, but are not limited to: 1) Need for updating based on new research; 2) Feedback from PS participants; and 3) Failure to provide all facets of training outlined in the PS Application. The PS applicant will have the opportunity to address the ACLD’s concerns and revise professional study for further review and re-submission.
The ACLD and the Alabama State Department of Education (SDE) do not endorse any groups, organizations, associations, agencies, individuals, private providers, vendors, and/or any other entities that submit Professional Study (PS) Applications for ACLD approval to earn Professional Learning Unit (PLU) status. ACLD approval is strictly for the content and delivery of the professional study provided through the application process.
