Professional Development Opportunities Open to Staff
As part of its recovery plan, MCPS has developed a website for staff, students and families that highlights ongoing professional learning opportunities for the virtual opening of schools.
For staff, training opportunities are focused around these key areas:
- Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment
- Social-Emotional Well-Being and Coaching for Engagement/Success
- Accessibility Tools for Instruction and Home
- Health and Safety
- Onboarding, Induction, Mentoring, Communication and Collaboration
The professional learning opportunities are grounded in equity and social-emotional learning to ensure that equitable environments are established in the virtual and traditional learning spaces. Professional learning opportunities will be updated throughout the year, so please check back frequently.
