Teacher Improvements

  • 74 Teachers trained this year
  • We trained 275 over four years
  • This year we began a 12 hour "Professional Learning Community" component that will take place after the 80 hours of professional development where teachers will meet in small groups to talk about how they are using their new content knowledge to inform their instruction in the classroom
  • We hope to train 100 teachers next year and pilot a measurement for student growth
