Professional Learning for Teachers

The purpose of the Grain Valley Schools Professional Development Committee (PDC) is to support and encourage the professional growth of all certified staff through high quality, job embedded professional development. As a result, all students will have an opportunity to achieve a high level of success.

The Grain Valley School District uses a three year induction program that starts with first year teachers. The purpose is three fold:

  • Support (Mentors): To reduce the anxiety of transitioning into teaching.
  • Retention: To expand the retention of highly qualified teachers.
  • Training: To instruct teachers in techniques that ensure student success.

While we have an Induction Program, Induction is actually an organized process which entails training and ongoing support for new teachers. The induction teams consists of administrators, mentors, staff developers and effective, experienced classroom teachers.
