PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT FOR ALL Destination: Schools hold professional learning among their top priorities for the school community. They recognize that universal high expectations for all students require ambitious and continual improvements in curriculum, instruction, assessment, leadership practices and support systems. These improvements require effective professional learning to expand educators’ knowledge, skills, practices and dispositions. Schools demand effective professional learning focused on substantive results for themselves, their colleagues, and their students. Schools artfully combine deep understanding and cultural responsiveness to the communities they serve. Schools hold high expectations with support for adult learning by providing multiple structures for professional development in order to achieve school goals. They embed professional learning into the organization’s vision by communicating that it is a core function for improvement and by establishing and maintaining a public and persistent focus on educator professional learning.
Professional Learning Alignment 5 Professional Learning 2013-14: Leadership and Learning provided Area Superintendent and Principal Professional Learning. Departments offered a variety of PD options that were not centrally aligned. Professional Learning 2014-15: Instructional Cabinet develops a year long focus.
