Welcome to Professional Learningt. Walla Walla Public Schools is committed to ensuring success for all students through high-quality professional learning opportunities. Our program is based on the belief that staff members are learners who continually improve their performance.
As stated in our 2011-2015 Strategic Plan, one of our four major district goals is to" "Provide a learning environment which meets the needs of individual learners, raises student achievement and educates the whole child." Using a comprehensive district professional development model, we have designed training and activities to support instructional staff and increase student achievement.
Our goal is to provide professional learning offerings that:
- Meet the individual needs of teachers.
- Minimize the impact on the instructional day.
- Support increased student achievement.
Instruction is most effective when teachers come together in whole or small groups and share common learning/experiences.
The Professional Learning section of the web site is designed to provide district personnel with an easy-to-use guide to professional learning courses and events. Please contact us in the Teachning and Learning Department, if you have any questions or concerns.
