Exemplary Professional Development

Professional Development is a SpringBoard strength. Our approach is face-to-face, multi-year and ongoing and is supported by online workshops and resources all designed to give teachers the tools they need to use the program successfully. All of our PD and coaching programs emphasize the instructional shifts of Common Core and help prepare teachers for the common assessments.

Support for Teachers

  • Initial Institutes enable new SpringBoard teachers to understand the methodology and the content they will be teaching.
  • Advanced Workshops and Focus Seminars build teachers' skills in year two and three.

Support for Instructional Leaders

  • Administrator Workshops and Toolkits provide best practices for implementation to achieve maximum results.
  • Onsite Cognitive Coaching and Progress Monitoring help enhance SpringBoard Implementations.
