A staggered professional development schedule allows ample opportunity for needed training and support in preparation for students to begin remote learning. The simultaneous professional development of all instructional staff is not feasible so high school staff will be trained first, followed by middle and elementary staff. During this time, teachers on all levels are connecting and engaging students and families prior to the start of phase 3. Here are the planned windows when staff will receive training and have time to prepare instruction for phase 3:
March 30, 2020 – April 8, 2020: High school staff will receive training and have time to prepare to engage their students in learning opportunities
April 1–17, 2020: Middle school staff receive training and have time to prepare to engage their students in learning opportunities
April 3–24, 2020: Elementary school staff receive training and have time to prepare to engage their students in learning opportunities
