Professional Learning

At its core, professional learning is the key component to improving educator practice and providing new perspectives on an ever-changing profession. While most content has remained consistent throughout time, instructional design, educational policy, and classroom tools and structures have been in constant motion. And effective professional development enables educators to develop the knowledge and skills they need to address students' learning challenges.

The Elmira City School District Professional Development Plan meets the requirements of the 100.2 (dd) Regulations of the State of New York. The purpose of this plan is to improve student learning by providing meaningful and focused professional development opportunities that are aligned with the Teaching and Learning Standards of New York State. Teacher effectiveness will be enhanced through a system of differentiated professional development activities to optimally prepare students for college, career and citizenship.
