Professional Development

The purpose of professional development is to provide a structured, supportive, and collaborative environment that will further the district’s comprehensive school improvement plan (CSIP) goals in order to increase student achievement. The framework of professional development is built upon the learning needs of students, the curriculum students are expected to learn, and the instructional strategies that make the curriculum accessible and understandable. It is essential that the design, implementation, and evaluation of instructional strategies selected for staff development align with district standards, grade level expectations, and benchmarks.
