Florida Statute 1012.98 specifies that, “The purpose of the professional development system is to increase student achievement.” The law stresses that the system must align with the Florida Professional Development Standards and support the framework for standards adopted by Learning Forward (formerly the National Staff Development Council). The Citrus County School District Professional Development System incorporates these standards in order to provide a comprehensive approach to supporting professional learning and improving professional practice of all employees.
With a strong focus on student achievement, the professional development program is streamlined to stress processes and a systems approach that fosters meaningful, ongoing learning for all employees. This system aligns the complex training and developmental needs of our staff into a comprehensive plan which ultimately benefits our students.
