Professional Development Offerings

Professional Development Opportunities 

School Based Professional Development Days:  Each school’s professional development committee has the right and responsibility for planning activities for members at the school. These activities can include an activity or many activities / workshops. As autonomous professionals, teachers may plan self-directed PD activities.  There are also district opportunities that arise.  In the interests of meeting individual teachers’ professional learning needs, the school PD committee may determine to include these options along with the school the opportunities planned by the school PD committee.
