Atlanta Public Schools is investing in the development of all of our teachers. We have recently launched our teacher development program to meet the needs of teachers from preparation to leadership development. Some of our featured teacher development initiatives are listed in the document below.
Ongoing Professional Learning
APS Instructional Staff are supported with a plethora of professional learning opportunities throughout the school year to include district-level and school-based opportunities. District-wide Professional Learning Day offerings, department/content specific offerings, as well as cluster/school-based learning opportunities are featured in our Professional Learning Catalog in MyPLC.
In Atlanta Public Schools, we believe that great teachers can make schools better places for students to learn by serving in well-defined teacher leader roles. We are advancing teacher leadership by launching Teacher Leadership Pathways, a system that communicates career advancement opportunities for teachers. Teacher Leadership Pathways aims to reward and recognize excellent teachers by outlining clearly-defined leadership opportunities that enable them to reach more students and develop leadership skills and competencies.
