Professional Development & Support


Teacher PD and Support Department Mission:

In Shelby County Schools, we believe that teachers have the most important job in the district, as our teachers are the primary drivers of our students’ achievement. We believe that teachers can adapt their practice to increase student achievement when they experience high-quality professional learning, and it is our collective responsibility to ensure that teachers have the professional development experiences that will enable them to adapt their practice to ensure that our students reach Destination 2025.
