Standards for Professional Learning

The Commission on School Accreditation approved the adoption of the Learning Forward Standards for Professional Learning, on April 18, 2012, as the state standards for professional development. These standards make explicit that the purpose of professional learning is for educators to develop the knowledge, skills, practices, and dispositions to help students perform at high levels. Additionally, the standards guide the design, implementation, and evaluation of professional learning, and allow for consistent, statewide implementation of a professional learning system.
