Professional Development Plan

Twin Rivers R-10 School District



The Professional Development Plan guides the professional development opportunities offered to the employees of the Twin Rivers R-10 District as they improve upon the strategies, skills, and knowledge needed to insure that all students acquire the life-long skills necessary to empower them to succeed in a changing world.  


The Professional Development Plan is a document which will be consistently reviewed and modified during the school year as we improve upon professional development through quality instruction, better student achievement, and promoting positive relationships between home, school, and community.  The Twin Rivers Board of Education will approve the final professional development plan.


The Twin Rivers R-10 School District Goals for 2016-2017 as established by the Comprehensive School Improvement Plan (CSIP) guided the district Professional Development Committee (PDC) and the individual grade level professional development teams, as a basis to form goals, which meet the professional development needs of our district.
