For the 2017-2018 school year, professional development will focus on district goals such as enhancing student engagement and increasing student learning. We will continue with district-wide advancements on our STEAM and Art Integration initiatives. At the elementary level, we will be preparing for the implementation of standards-based report cards in the 2018-2019 school year and we will continue our work with Gravity Goldberg on Writer’s Workshop as we expand to include Reader’s Workshop in grades K-3.
We are looking forward to continued development with Turn-It-In, G-Suite and instructional technologies training, and exploration and growth with Maker Space and Innovation Labs throughout the district. We are proud to say that we are continuing our partnerships with NASA, Liberty Science Center, Rutgers University, and Sussex County Community College.
