Professional Development

Education for all students in the East Rochester School District is delivered by highly qualified teachers and staff, with the level of rigor as outlined in the Next Generation Learning Standards, and in alignment with the beliefs and goals of the District. The District recognizes the correlation between student success and skilled tier one instruction.

The East Rochester School District is committed to the success of each child in a safe, supportive, and stimulating learning environment. We believe that all students develop intellectually, emotionally, physically, and socially at different paces. Our school district will inspire high student achievement and demonstrate commitment to diversity. The following statements describe the mission, vision, and beliefs developed by a committee of school-district stakeholders.

The purpose of the professional development plan is to continue to improve the quality of
teaching and learning by ensuring that teachers participate in substantial professional development to remain current in their profession while meeting the learning needs of their students. High-quality professional development fosters change in classroom practice resulting in increased academic achievement for all students. We can ensure professional development is “time well spent” if we provide professional development opportunities that are job-embedded, sustained over time, centered on active learning, and focused on student outcomes.
