TEACHING & LEARNING
The contemporary job of the teacher is exceedingly complex, requiring a wide array of knowledge and skills. That’s why the professional learning of educators requires thoughtful organization and resources, and must be focused on the advancement of student learning. All certificated staff are required to earn 20 professional development hours per year.
