Customized Professional Development
Connected Class is a full-service professional development company for K-12 educators. We support public and private schools from large districts to individual schools with customized professional learning based on the needs of the students and teachers.
Our needs assessment process identifies the greatest area of need through data analysis and educator reflection. Our comprehensive packages support schools in developing system-wide goals for student achievement along with a pathway to reach those goals.
Our solutions include:
- Onsite professional development with workshops, institutes, facilitation, and onsite coaching options
- Institutes: Customized learning over several days that focus on overall school improvement. Systems and schools are guided through the school improvement process in a creative and exciting atmosphere. Leadership, team building, and goal setting are just a few of the topics that can be incorporated into an institute. Each institute is developed based on the needs of the system or the school. Research-based best practices are communicated as well as modeled. The goal of each institute is to help the school reach its potential by developing an action plan for implementation.
- Ongoing communication with an instructional specialist using the Direct Connect online platform.
- Connected Class takes school improvement a step further and incorporates strategies and videos into professional development to increase communication from the school to the home environment.
Whether your need is for a one-time specialized training, or you need an elaborate professional development package to support the growth of a school system, Connected Class can help you reach your vision for student success.
