Professional Development

LeadLearn2Professional development focuses on improving instruction and student learning.  It provides staff with an opportunity for in-depth study and learning to enhance the delivery of professional services, practice and feedback, reflection, and expert support designed to change attitudes, insights, and perspectives.  The Worthington School District is committed to offering staff opportunities for high-quality professional development. The District's Race to the Top Plan has produced several reform initiatives that will require all staff members to engage in professional development training that will define professional expectations and ensure consistency of professional practice across the District.  

In addition to required professional development training offered by the District, staff members are encouraged to engage in professional development opportunities identified through personal professional reflection.  Please find below current ways to meet your professional and personal needs.  Please refer to the professional development calendar for specific offerings with dates, times, and locations.
