Professional Learning is the means by which teachers, administrators, and other staff acquire, enhance, and refine the knowledge, skills, practices, and dispositions necessary to create and support high levels of learning for all students.
The Office of School Improvement, Division of School and District Effectiveness, will host the professional learning opportunities below pending State Board of Education approval.

During this two-day event, participants received information on new and practical resources from divisions across the Georgia Department of Education (GaDOE) and partnering agencies to support district and school effectiveness and improvement efforts.
