Professional Development

For any initiative to be successful, a plan must be created that addresses the professional development needs of staff along with how to provide ongoing support so that what is learned becomes automatic for staff who are implementing the ideas. The district’s professional development plan is directly related to the district’s school improvement goals to reduce redundancies and conflicting messages as well as to provide an efficient way of training staff. The goal is to connect the professional development efforts across the district to improve student outcomes.

Please use any of the provided resources to enhance your understanding and implementation of PBIS for yourself, or take back to your school to share with your staff. Resources have been provided by MPS Central Office staff and best practices from individual school buildings. Feel free to use and adjust to fit your needs.
