Customized Professional Development
The Center for Professional Development’s highly acclaimed staff is regularly sought out to provide professional development services to a variety of organizations including: the Colorado Department of Education, the Charter School Support Initiative, the League of Charter Schools, professional educational organizations and their annual conferences, as well as by individual charter schools, traditional district schools, and universities.
Professional development provided by the CPD is customized for the needs of the contracting organization and may range from school assessment visits to induction programming to teacher training in research-based best practices. Prices and availability of services vary.
The Center for Professional Development offers induction services tailored to meet the needs of individual teachers through collaborative educational partnerships. Professional development through Peak to Peak Charter School’s state-certified induction program is a proven avenue toward increasing teacher mastery and retaining quality teachers, improving overall school quality and promoting student academic achievement.
The induction program runs for one full school year. Initially licensed teachers who successfully complete the program receive a certificate to submit to the Colorado Department of Education when applying for a professional license.
