Finding Time to Educate Teachers
Halsdorfer, Jeffrey
Online Submission
For about two years the Rochester City School District has eliminated much of the teachers' mandatory staff development time. In years past students would be released almost an hour early once a week to create time for staff development. Due to such issues as low test scores, numerous retirements, and many newly adopted reform programs the city school district felt it was necessary to create additional time for staff development. Unfortunately, much of the time set aside for in-services was monopolized by school reform programs such as America's Choice. With teacher expectations growing so is the need for professional development. This document offers numerous approaches to offering quality professional development to staff.
