Staff Development Review Summary. Accountability Report.
This report addresses reorganizing staff training efforts in the Wake County Public School System (WCPSS), North Carolina. Training includes both formal workshops and more informal growth opportunities for staff. Data sources for the report include surveys or focus groups from principals and central school district staff, a review of national standards for staff development, interviews and written feedback from four Educational Benchmark Network school systems and Howard County, Maryland, and cost analyses. Respondents believe that staff training would be more effective if all offerings were aligned with the system achievement goal and related critical success factors. Better planning and scheduling of training efforts were also recommended by respondents. In the WCPSS, no single office or department is in charge of coordinating training for administrators and other professionals. Recommendations are made for establishing a department to coordinate training offerings for all job groups. (SLD)
