Professional Learning Available to Teachers, Supporting Staff
During the second semester, MCPS will continue to offer a variety of professional learning opportunities for teachers and supporting staff.
Training opportunities are focused on 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. Staff can access these opportunities by visiting the MCPS For Staff page and also by searching the Professional Development Online (PDO) system. Once in PDO, staff can search for courses by position or keywords based on their interest.
If you are interested in Continuing Professional Development courses for the winter/spring semester, register through the PDO system. Professional learning opportunities will continue to be updated throughout the year, so check back frequently.
