December 1st is the next professional development day for our instructional staff. Building principals have been finalizing their plans for the day and will be sharing them with staff in the second half of the month. Teachers should remember that this day is ½ professional development and ½ teacher work day, as well as the last day of Trimester 1 for the traditional calendar program.

Building leadership will be facilitating the ½ professional development and ½ teacher work day on Friday, December 1, 2017. Having common district events and building specific events allows our district to meet the needs of teachers from both a unified organizational perspective as well as a unique building perspective. The next issue of “On Target” will provide an update on each school’s plan for the day and how it relates to the District Professional Development Themes.


Throughout the 2017-2020 school years, all professional development experiences will continue to focus on the District Professional Development Themes which were developed by the District Professional Development Committee in Spring of 2017. These themes provide valuable experiences to all employee groups and ensure focus on developing staff to best meet the needs of students and a unified community.

Please make sure to continue to check out the Cambridge-Isanti Schools PD Site for the most current information, CEU downloads, resources that will help with pd days and planning your class instruction, and updated calendars for professional development. Thank you for continuing to dedicate yourselves to strengthening your skills through pd.
