The School Board believes that meaningful and relevant training is a necessary prerequisite for the ongoing professional growth for all District employees and therefore, encourages the participation of all employees in District in-service and other training programs.
The purpose of the professional development system is to increase student achievement, enhance classroom instructional strategies that promote rigor and relevance throughout the curriculum, and prepare students for continuing education and the workforce.
The Board shall provide funding for the professional development system and shall direct expenditures from other funding sources to continuously strengthen the system.
The Board shall 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, and the Florida Leadership Standards. The Superintendent shall annually report to the Board on the implementation of the plan.

The Board shall periodically review language in the Master Inservice Plan for the purpose of making any necessary revisions, additions, or deletions. This document shall then be officially approved and adopted by the Board.
