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 2018-19, teachers in SCPS will have at least TWO PD days (depending upon school-level needs, possibly three days) allotted for personalized learning. This conference might fill that need for teachers, or other selections may fill that need. To reflect on your needs, see the Professional Learning Continuum.

Another SCPS Talent Development Conference will be held in the fall, the first week of October Break, on October 16, as well as on Election Day, November 6.

Even if teachers 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.
