Professional Development presenter

The purpose of the Dorchester School District Two Office of Professional Development is to improve the quality of teaching and learning, and to directly align its objectives with the continued commitment to putting students first, professionalism, instructional technology, respect for all, high expectations, learning standards, and shared decision making

Our professional development program is intentionally designed to build skills and capacities for improvement through comprehensive and ongoing learning. We believe that proven and relevant professional development programs are positive links to establishing effective instructional practices that will enhance the knowledge of curriculum content, design, and delivery.

Over 2000 professional learning opportunities are provided to staff members on a yearly basis. Employees may view a list of these offerings and register to attend them on the new PowerSchool Professional Learning (previously ERO).
