In my school district, Frontline Professional Growth is used to manage employee compensation. You can search for in-service classes and request permission for professional development opportunities. We use this program to receive salary upgrades based on additional educational credits. Additionally, Frontline Professional Growth is where classroom observations and annual evaluations are posted for employees to review their performance and make comments if necessary. Frontline Professional Growth is used for professional growth and eliminates a lot of unnecessary paperwork by digitizing processes that previously required a lot of paperwork.
  • Saves paperwork.
  • Keeps digital copies of records to review on demand.
  • Confusing sign-on processes.
  • AESOP (absence management) is not integrated with Professional Growth as advertised.
Frontline Professional Growth is well suited for managing instructional staff in a district. When the districts allow their employees to attend conferences, this program allows for an efficient approval process for obtaining a substitute and receiving reimbursements. This program helps staff monitor their salary in accordance with collective bargaining agreements.

Frontline Professional Growth was used to collect trainings and professional development credentials for staff. It was easy to use by staff members who were both tech savvy as well as novice users of tech. This is definitely a benefit to businesses and schools looking to meet a wide array of users.
  • Provides professional learning opportunities to employees.
  • Easy to track and navigate users.
  • Professional development that is easy to access and convenient.
  • Instructing beginner users on how to navigate for the first time.
Developing meaningful and time conscious professional development for faculty is rewarding for faculty to be able to use when they see fit.

I have used Frontline Professional Growth since it was formerly MyLearningPlan. The main reason we went to this program was to be able to better track our staff professional development hours as well as digitize frequently used forms so that we mitigated paper copies and running them to individuals for signatures. Since we use many of Frontline's other services, such as Absence Management and Oasis Evaluation, this was easy to integrate since it pulled the information we already had in the system. Tracking professional development hours of all staff members is no easy task and this has helped us do that. I am in this platform daily, awarding hours, approving workshops, adding professional development opportunities, and submitting forms.
  • Frontline includes a digital catalog, that you can use to enter all of your professional development workshops into, and track who is attending, print sign-in sheets, and tag professional hours.
  • The digital routing of forms was a main goal of ours. Not too many applications can create custom routing procedures, and go from person to person as designated in the configuration of the form.
  • The ability to take all of your commonly used forms and have they digital and available for teachers is useful.
  • Teachers can track how many hours they have earned throughout the year (and years) in their digital portfolio.
  • The configuration and startup of Frontline Professional Growth is time-consuming. I wish this was easier to get going.
  • Creating forms is difficult and the form editor is hard to navigate and use. You cannot create a form yourself. That has to be created and entered into your system by Frontline, which takes more time, especially if it is an easy form you want to create.
  • There needs to be a better way to save forms you are completing and being able to go right back to them at a later date. I have had teachers lose what they were doing when saving a draft and then have to start all over.
  • Notifications on forms at individual levels only go out once a day, sometime around 2am. This should be instantaneous, notifying individuals as the form comes in.
This is perfect for the district looking to convert older physical forms to digital copies, and mitigate the tracking of forms from desk to desk. Frontline will do it all digitally. Those in the approval process can approve or deny, or even ask for more information, which sends the form back to the user who submitted it. This is also good for those looking for a way to manage professional development in their district and all that comes with it, including tracking workshops, awarding hours, etc. Most districts use Frontline programs somewhere, so this is another piece to that. However, this is cost-heavy.
