Professional Development for BPS Staff

Providing high quality professional opportunities is critical to supporting your growth and professional development.  The BPS PD program is supported through three primary means: 

  • Professional Development meetings - (faculty, department and curriculum meetings) led by Principals, Directors and Curriculum Specialists focusing on district, school and program goals; 
  • Professional Learning Teams - educators working together on a targeted area of need to improve learning for all students; and 
  • Professional Development courses, seminars, workshops, and study groups - led by BPS educators, outside experts, and partner organizations. 

As you plan your professional development for the year, it is our hope that these workshops and opportunities will support your Professional Practice and Student Learning Goals as well as your ongoing learning and growth.
