The Professional Development Advisory Committee is a volunteer team of K-12 teachers that meets quarterly to help develop and refine the district’s professional development plan. The team has worked over the years to revamp the system and structure of professional development days which has received positive feedback.. Typically each PD day is broken into three separate sessions in an “un-conference” format. Teachers are provided a menu of topics and chose from, session instructors include teacher leaders, administrators and consultants.
The next professional development day is scheduled for February 17, 2017. We will be running 20+ different sessions including: Personalized Learning, CPR overview, Math Problem Solving, Hyper Docs, ELL Resources, Next Generation Reading Instruction, Osmos, Technology Troubleshooting, Teaching Empathy, Amazing Race-The Google Form Way, and many more.
Our last Professional Development Advisory Committee meeting was held on January 23rd @ 3:15 in the Middle School. A special thanks goes out to committee members for their help planning the upcoming PD day as well as working on the 17-18 school calendar. The PDAC members include: Alyssa Koerner, Jennifer Daigneault, Brittany Robichaud, Amy Wright, Tracey Nangle, Deana Cook, Sarah Glover, Adam Stanley, Corinne Ferri, Tracy Lafreniere, Diane Jolin, and Kimberly Rawson.
