This may involve providing opportunities for collaboration on instructional planning and other areas.

- Support Teacher-Led Professional Development: Support teacher-led professional development by providing opportunities for teachers to share their expertise with their colleagues. This may involve creating a system for teachers to lead workshops, present at conferences, or create online training modules.
- Use Data to Inform Professional Development: Use data to inform professional development by identifying areas where teachers and administrators need support and developing training programs to meet those needs. This may involve analyzing student achievement data, teacher evaluation data, or other relevant data.
- Recognize and Reward Professional Development: Recognize and reward teachers and administrators for their professional development achievements. This may involve providing incentives, such as salary increases or promotions, for completing professional development programs or for demonstrating exceptional teaching skills.
- Promote Lifelong Learning: Promote lifelong learning among teachers and administrators by creating a culture of ongoing learning and growth. This may involve encouraging teachers and administrators to pursue advanced degrees or certifications or to participate in research projects or other learning opportunities.
By promoting ongoing professional development for teachers and administrators, school administrators can establish a culture of continuous improvement. Ongoing professional development can improve student achievement, meet diverse student needs, promote equity, support teacher and administrator well-being, and facilitate collaboration and innovation in the school community.
