Georgia's State Plan for Staff Development.
Stone, J. Fulton
The concept of staff development and continuous improvement for teachers and administrators is discussed in the context of a state-developed plan that allows teacher certification renewal only after participation in an approved local staff development program. The plan stipulates that local educational agencies identify student needs and competencies needed by educational personnel and plan training activities for teachers, administrators, and other school personnel to meet those needs. The steps included in this plan are: (1) determining priority student needs and causes of needs; (2) selecting educational improvement activities; (3) specifying competencies needed by educational personnel; (4) designing the staff development program; and (5) evaluating and assessing the program. The document also provides a list of resources for technical assistance for implementing similar programs, a budget information sheet, and a guideline on procedures and standards for certification renewal through local staff development.
