Professional Development in Berwyn South School District 100: A Mindset, Not An Event

Berwyn South School District 100 is committed to facilitating ongoing professional development for its staff. As such, we adhere to the Learning Forward Standards for Professional Learning. These standards guide the design, implementation, and evaluation of professional learning activities in D100 as required by the Illinois State Board of Education. "Learning Forward's standards outline the essential elements of and conditions for professional learning that strengthens educator effectiveness and increases student learning. Widespread attention to the standards increases equity of access to high-quality education for every student, not just for those lucky enough to attend schools in more advantaged communities" (www.learningforward.org).

Our standards for PD focus on:

  • Learning Communities
  • Leadership
  • Resources
  • Data
  • Learning Designs
  • Implementation
  • Outcomes

The intended outcome of all D100 professional development is to increase educators' practice in order to facilitate successful student learning.

 

Berwyn South District 100 is taking the lead with innovative professional development options by now offering virtual learning opportunities for staff.
