Empowering Educators: Nurturing Professional Growth in School Districts

As a Talent Management and Development Consulting Firm, Alma Advisory Group understands the exponent of engaging your staff’s talent through well-planned, differentiated, and purposeful professional development throughout the school year. Here are three quick tips to guide you through professional development for your school district.

Professional Development

Tip 1: Launch the year with a coherent and intentional plan for PD that is directly tied to your school’s goals and your organization’s programmatic requirements.

Tip 2: In addition to designing your overarching PD plan, creating conditions for learning communities in your school to thrive allows for data-driven vertical, horizontal, and global development to occur. Leaders can meet individual teachers and staff members precisely where they are regarding learning needs when multiple options for professional development exist within a comprehensive PD plan. 

Tip 3: Don’t forget to ask your staff what works for them regarding how they learn best! Triangulating student outcomes data, your school’s goals, and staff survey information are vital in designing a thoughtful and impactful PD plan for your team.
