The options for Professional Development are delineated with recommendations depending on the context and the content of the instructional focus. The constructs for these PD programs include one-day sessions, and multiple–day sessions, ranging from full-day sessions to Saturday and summer sessions, to online course work.

By providing various PD options for your leadership and for your teachers, you provide built-in choice for the adult learner- staff preferences, based on personal obligations with family, participation in after school programs and other professional commitments.

Please review the PD options presented and call on our team of staff development experts. They will work with you and your team to sequence the PD plan that supports your instructional goals over the next several years.

As you make decisions about the sequence of PD sessions, RFA will finalize all details (contract, stipends, books, etc) in the form of a one-page agreement for your review. The RFA staff of consultants will work collaboratively with you to tailor the various components to address your specific school assessment data and other relevant school demographics
