Mission Statement: The Professional Learning Team believes that effective professional growth has a positive impact on student learning. Our goal is to create and implement a unified vision for the district. At the same time, we differentiate to meet the needs of each building, department, and staff member. Professional growth can take a variety of forms, including the traditional workshop, but more often includes growth-promoting opportunities like study groups, action research, and peer coaching. Engaging teachers in such activities prepares them to empower students to reach their full potential.
