Badge Program and Witsby

Badge Program

Designed with Round Lake educators in mind, badges are optional self-paced online or facilitator-led courses that educators complete over the school year. All of the badges that we offer are linked to district goals. Badges are deep dives into highly relevant topics, and they’re a great way to earn recognition for expanding your learning in an area of your choosing.

  • Last fall, 19 RLAS-116 staff members completed 31 badges.
  • This spring, 26 staff members registered for 46 badges.

Upon completing their badge courses, staff receive a pin and a tumbler with the badge image. And for every five badge courses they complete, they receive a Department of Professional Learning badge program hoodie!

“I was surprised how easy it was to complete these badges, and how applicable the things I was learning in them would be to my classes that I teach. New ways to ask questions, new ways to get students to talk to each other, and new ways I can present content to students are all things that I will incorporate into my lessons."
-- Erica Robinson, math teacher
