What is PD³?

PD³ is professional development that offers choice and variety. In a day and age of reduced common planning time and limited budgets, we recognize that teachers need the option to be proactive in taking responsibility for their own professional development. One size fits all models and formats don't always apply. At Northside, we value the opportunity to explore ways to help our faculty make professional development purposeful and meaningful for their classrooms. As a 1:1 Chromebook school, we have chosen to highlight technology in our professional development time. We have developed a mission, vision and goals that align our professional development focus and classroom practice. We have experimented with formats that allow our teachers to play, dig, discover and develop.

Within this site we share our planning documents and experiences. Feel free to use any of these materials in part or whole. Please acknowledge this site as their origin.
