Support Remote Professional Development for Your Staff

As the debate continues around when and how schools will reopen following the COVID-19 pandemic, education leaders are focusing their discussions on what it will look like when they do. When schools do reopen, things will likely not immediately return to “normal” as schools may need to alter activities to maintain social distancing guidelines and avoid gatherings of large groups of students and staff.

These changes will no doubt have an impact on planned professional development activities during the coming months. While the end of the school year and the summer months are frequently used for PD in preparation for the following year, many planned activities may have to be cancelled or altered.

How Online Courses Can Help Districts Provide Remote Professional Development
