Reopening and Reimagining for a Brighter Future - Reopening Plan

Professional Development: Adult Learners

All adult learners (Faculty & Staff) will be able to develop their unique self, to develop their individual capacity, and to contribute to the school community through continuous cycles of inquiry. We believe that given support and opportunities, all adult learners will be continually inspired to persevere and maximize their potential. 

We support each adult’s unique way of learning, giving them an understanding of themselves as lifelong learners. We honor each learner’s learning path, energize them to develop skills, expand their mind, grow in all areas, and meet current and future goals within their professional practice in order to improve student performance. 

Implementation:

Adult learners pursuing their full capacity will engage in, but are not limited to, the following indicators:

  • Identify and pursue professional goals

  • Create an environment of acceptance and equity
