Personalized Learning for all
As a part of our Strategic Leadership Plan, our goal is that teachers not only lead professional learning, but gain more personalized professional learning, and demonstrate competency with what they have learned and put into practice.
To meet that end, we have established the SCPS Personalized Learning Conference, now entitled SCPS Talent Development Conference.
In 2019-2020, teachers in SCPS will have some time allotted for personalized learning. The amount of time is personalized by school, depending on school needs. There are Personalized Learning Cadres and the Personalized Learning Conference, each designed to meet the need for teachers. Teachers may also engage in professional learning through attending conferences or other professional learning opportunities approved by the principal. To reflect on your needs, see the Professional Learning Continuum.
The SCPS Talent Development Conference will be held August 6-8, as well as on Election Day, November 5.
Even if you have filled the PD requirements, you are welcome to register and attend sessions of interest on their own time (no stipend allotted) in order to meet the teaching competency in their professional growth plan.
