Professional Development button

The Professional Development Sprint Team is made up of a diverse group of teachers, staff, and administrators. Our mission was to gather feedback in order to inform the Professional Development needs of our staff members.  We know that we have a very short time to get over 3,000 employees professional learning in order for them to be geared up for August 2020, regardless of the learning model. In addition, we need to build out training for families. The key takeaway is that professional learning and training has to be differentiated, chunked, and focused on the how for staff and families.
