Continuous Improvement and Embedded Professional Development

Continuous Improvement and Embedded Professional Development  

The move to online instruction last year came at a rapid pace, and we recognize that many staff members may have felt ill-equipped to tackle the change. This year, we will ensure that all teachers have consistent, embedded professional development during the year, so that they are prepared for any scenario. The expectation is that there will be daily and weekly training so that teachers are constantly being given the tools they need to support students. Topics to be covered include:

  • Balanced, Unbiased curriculum delivery
  • Building Classroom Culture (SEL)
  • Health, Safety, and Wellness
  • Instructional Expectations
  • PLCS: Unit, Concept and Lesson Design
