Goal 5 Summary of Work Completed

The strategic planning committee for goal #5 has completed its review and recommendations for district professional development. We discussed the various processes and practices of building and district staff development committees including who are on the committees, how decisions get made, how communication and feedback is conducted, and how teachers can get involved and add their voice to the process. Recommendations have resulted in improved communication, clarified opportunities for participation and involvement in planning and reviewing activities, and professional development that is increasingly inclusive and relevant to staff. The next step for the committee is to convene again in the fall of 2018 to revisit continued progress in the goal area.
