"Be not afraid of growing slowly; be afraid only of standing still."
~ Chinese Proverb
In education, research has shown that teaching quality and school leadership are the most important factors in raising student achievement. Staff development is a critical component to building excellent teaching quality, school leadership, and an outstanding education system. Our teachers participate in a variety of in-service and supplemental programs throughout the year to learn research-based practices and maintain active certification. Additionally, a variety of staff development opportunities are provided to paraprofessional and non-professional staff members to ensure that the district maintains the highest quality personnel.
