Professional Development in Hutchinson Public Schools
The goal of professional development is to improve student achievement by equipping every staff member with the knowledge, skills, and behaviors for continuously improving instruction.
While educators improve their skills through self-improvement efforts, systematic change requires collective and sustained efforts. A comprehensive professional development plan promotes student achievement by providing directed, job embedded, and on-going professional development, aligned with the district's Mission, Vision, and Strategic Plan.
