    Under the auspice of the Educational Services Division, the Leadership and Secondary Teacher Development Department and the Elementary Teacher Development Department coordinate, conduct, and oversee professional learning opportunities for teachers, administrators, and paraprofessionals that lead toward improved student achievement. Our office staff stands ready to assist our educational community with inquiries, technical assistance, training, and other professional development needs as related to teaching and learning.

    In an effort to keep our district teachers and administrators abreast of professional development opportunities that may support professional growth, we have created a page (PD Opportunities) that will provide information on a variety of on-going professional development activities in the district, at the state level, or out-of-state. You will also see a monthly calendar that will be posted on that page listing all workshops for that month.
