Local Optional Teacher Designation System (LOTDS)


The development, implementation, and maintenance of a LOTDS is a robust process and experience that districts do not have to embark on or continue alone. Region 4 is here with everything you need regardless of a district's stage, year, and/or cohort for an LOTDS. Below are some examples of the services and supports provided. The professional development sessions will be available for registration online at the Region 4 website, while all other services are customized. Please use the service request form or send us an e-mail to discuss how we develop a customized plan that meets your needs.
