The School Board believes that meaningful and relevant training is a necessary prerequisite for the ongoing professional growth of all District employees and, therefore, encourages the participation of all employees in District in-service and other training programs.
The Board will provide funding for the professional development system and will direct expenditures from other funding sources to continuously strengthen the system.
The Board will establish a comprehensive program of staff development that incorporates school improvement plans and is aligned with the Florida Professional Development System Evaluation Protocol Standards, which support the framework for standards adopted by the National Staff Development Council.
The Superintendent will annually report to the Board on any revisions made to the plan.
