Professional Learning

Professional learning is necessary for teachers, administrators and other school and system employees to acquire, enhance or refine the knowledge, skills and commitment necessary to create and support high levels of learning for all students. Professional learning, professional development, staff development, and in-service training are synonymous terms. In order for students to learn and perform at high levels, educators must be learning virtually all of the time. Optimal professional learning is standards-based, results-driven, systemic, ongoing, and embedded into the daily routine of educators. The purpose of staff development is quality learning and superior performance for all students and staff.
