The Professional Learning Department promotes the success of all students by facilitating the development, articulation, implementation, and stewardship of a vision of professional learning that is shared and supported by the school community.  As a branch of Academic Services, the department is responsible for the design, development and implementation of a coherent professional learning and support system:

  • rooted in student and educator needs;
  • focused on content and pedagogy;
  • designed to ensure equitable access, opportunities, and outcomes for all students;
  • ongoing, intensive and embedded in practice;
  • collaborative, with an emphasis on shared accountability;
  • supported by adequate resources; and
  • coherent and aligned with other standards, policies, and programs.

Together with district, campus and community stakeholders, the department provides professional learning aligned to research and evidence-based practices, the District strategic plan, and nationally-recognized Standards for Professional Learning.
