In-District Professional Development (PD)
- PD Paths
On three Wednesday afternoons over the school year, the entire PreK – 12 faculty come together for professional development. Individual educators choose one of over 15 “Paths” to attend for all three sessions. These workshops and training are all led by experts in their respective fields. Educators are given articles, books, videos, and presentations to pursue outside of the workshop time. This ability to choose a topic, lengthy exposure, and depth of exploration has proven to lead to advanced learning for our faculty and, therefore, an enriched learning experience for our students. Topics for paths include: social-emotional learning; cultural competency; using technology; and special education.
PD Paths – Wednesdays 1:00 PM – 3:00 PM | Oct. 12, 2022; Dec. 14, 2022; Feb. 1, 2023
Most paths are worth 6 PDPs in work during class. You can log more PDPs into MLP for work done outside of class.
