Professional development is the strategy Muskogee Public Schools uses to ensure that our educators continue to strengthen their instructional practice for educators and students. We recognize that for teachers and district leaders to be effective, they must continually expand their knowledge and skills to implement best educational practices at the highest levels.
Muskogee Public Schools offers professional development in a variety of ways to ensure that we are meeting the needs of all staff. There are five instructional days scheduled throughout the school year to provide district wide opportunities for learning. Professional learning communities are another tool that we use districtwide to promote ongoing learning. At the leadership level, PLCs allow district leaders to evaluate their practices to better support their staff and students. At the school level, teachers engage in ongoing collaborative learning and work time to analyze and assess student data to inform the instructional program. We are committed to ensuring that our teachers are continuously working towards improving their performance and raising the bar on student achievement.
