Local Designation System (LDS)


The development, implementation, and maintenance of a LDS is a robust process and experience that districts do not have to embark on, nor continue alone. As your District Advancement Champions the Educator Excellence team at Region 4 has everything you need! We are pleased to offer you contracted services, micro-bundles, and professional development. Contracted services and micro-bundles may include any type of support within the five specialty categories, including General TIA Support, Teacher Observation,  Student Growth Measures, Data Analysis, and Spending and Strategic Compensation. Please see below for more information and please use the service request form or send us an e-mail to discuss how we develop a customized plan that meets your needs.
