Professional Development

Our Mission

Professional development is a central part of our district's efforts to become a learning community that promotes lifelong learning for all students, staff, parents and community members. We model lifelong learning and collaboration in a district where students are learning successfully and teachers are teaching effectively. 

We believe that in order to meet the needs of all students:

  • The core business of Johnson County School District #1 is to make learning valuable, satisfying, and challenging for all students.
  • Students are our customers, and they volunteer their attention and commitment.
  • All students can learn when enthusiastically engaged in their work.
  • The learning environment will be challenging, positive, supportive, and safe.
  • All students need adult advocates.
  • Collaboration among all stakeholders is vital to the success of all students.
  • Staff members will continually improve their craft through ongoing professional development, with emphasis on research-based practices.
