Curriculum & Instruction Roundtable: Professional Development

The Community Roundtable on curriculum and instruction that was held on Tuesday, Oct. 13, included lively discussion on a variety of topics. In order to keep the conversation going, we invite readers to post their thoughts on each question that was presented to participants at the Community Roundtable. Click here for notes on what was discussed at the Community Roundtable.

Throughout the years, Broadalbin-Perth has had a strong commitment to furthering the professional growth of all district employees through various professional development opportunities. From learning the latest teaching techniques and best practices to exploring new areas of curriculum development, the professional development program has focused on giving teachers, support staff and other school employees the tools and skills necessary to provide the best possible learning environment for our students.

Do you share the belief that professional development is a vital component for the continued success of a school district?
