Professional Development

PD

The Mansfield Public Schools believes that staff members should be provided with instructional development opportunities, which are consistent with our mission statement, our system wide goals, The Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks, and The Massachusetts Comprehensive Assessment (MCAS) Tests. Fostering the professional growth of school personnel and expanding their repertoire of instructional strategies will promote a more effective learning environment to enable all students to reach their full potential.


Our professional development program contains a variety of opportunities for our educators to acquire content knowledge and understanding, to develop skills for the classroom and beyond, and to improve pedagogy.  Through the in-service courses, on-line courses, after school, conferences and workshops, grade level sessions, and departmental meetings, we are implementing the goals set by our long range learning plan.
