The Staff Developer

Course offerings in The Staff Developer represent the commitment of the school division to the professional development of its employees.  These offerings are system-sponsored and free to employees of the school division. 

The Staff Developer is divided into five sections.  The first section advertises courses that are part of the add-on endorsement series (e.g., gifted education, ESL).  A variety of courses listed by content and other instructional opportunities are included in the second section.  Courses focusing specifically on differentiated instruction and literacy are in the third section of The Staff Developer.  The fourth section offers courses designed to support special education.  The final section advertises courses designed to assist personnel in integrating technology into instruction.  Licensed personnel may earn licensure points for these courses.
