OFFICE OF PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT & CURRICULUM

Professional development programs should provide equal opportunities for these employees to gain and improve the knowledge and skills important to their positions and job performance. These programs should assure that appropriate education employees have a decisive voices at every stage of planning, implementation, and evaluation.”
