Support for Districts

Making the PDP- District Connection

Initial Educators + PDP Support = Greater Student Learning and Professional Growth

Can your district do more to support your Initial Educators in the licensing process? Yes! Does providing a supportive PDP environment enhance professional development of new teachers, mentors and all staff? Yes! Would you like to learn more? Program Leads, and one or two mentors who are interested in learning more about supporting Initial Educators through the PDP process are invited to attend a new SEWNTP learning opportunity- Making the PDP District Connection workshop with our SEWNTP PI-34 Coordinator, Mary Cieslewicz.
