The Professional Development Department designs the training framework which aligns all work related to teacher development and teacher leadership development. All face to face and online professional development frameworks and systems are designed to support the Dallas ISD Education Plan and instructional priorities. PD is organized systematically to ensure Teaching and Learning, Human Capital Management and School Leadership departments are aligned.
This department creates all professional development catalogs and online PD for campus teachers and administrators building teacher capacity with pedagogy, content, and strategies to support at-risk learners. Additionally, the PD department organizes the personalized P2LD training conference during the summer for all Dallas teachers and works with campus principals to design their campus PD plans.
