Professional Development

Kentucky's Unbridled Learning initiative has increased the need for quality professional development.  In 2015-16, training will focus on implementing the new Dragon Days program, Spanish in the elementary school, literacy at all levels, and working with children who have experienced trauma.  Other key areas will be implementation of the Next Generation Science Standards, preparation for the new arts standards, math benchmarking, and refinement of Student Growth Goals.  Formal professional development days are scheduled in the calendar for August 4, 2015, September 8, 2015,  November 3, 2015, and February 15, 2016.  There will be no school for students on those days.  In addition, job-embedded professional learning opportunities are available throughout the year.
