Decades of research indicate that the two most important influences on student achievement are effective teachers and leaders. CNUSD embraces a strong Professional Development program that is innovative and reflective of the district mission, for the purpose of supporting teacher/leader growth. All Professional Development is grounded in the California Standards for the Teaching Profession and incorporates the National Staff Development Council Standards. The district has developed various teams to examine Professional Development and create criteria, based on research that reflects the most essential components for facilitating teacher growth, including the development of on-line offerings. A Professional Development Filter has been created in order to weigh the relevance of each potential offering and its effect on quality teacher instruction as it translates into high academic achievement for all students in the District.
