OUR APPROACH • Professional Development
It starts with every Summit teacher as an empowered, self-directed and continuous learner working to improve student outcomes every day. We know that providing students with high-quality, high-impact teachers is one of the most important factors in their success.
Teachers develop professional skills that equip them to design high-impact strategies for every student, every day. We do this through an innovative professional development program in which:
- Every teacher participates in 40 days of professional development each year.
- Every teacher has access to professional development experiences that are personalized to meet their needs, goal-driven, and supported by high-quality tools and resources.
- Every teacher's development is linked to student success.
- Every teacher has the opportunity to share best practices and collaborate with his or her peers to ensure we are always providing students with the highest quality education.
These professional development experiences ensure that teachers are empowered to drive their own development, growth and improvement.
