Vision for Professional Learning:

As a destination for excellence, we welcome the TPS community to be innovative leaders and active partners in the development of individual, team, school and district capacity to enact the vision for learning in all classrooms. Professional learning in TPS:

  • Engages all members of the TPS community in joyful, challenging and active learning
  • Aligns to clearly communicated district priorities, with a clear purpose and consistent, yet flexible direction for achieving the ultimate goal of equitable student outcomes
  • Creates a sense of urgency for change by defining the “why” 
  • Utilizes a flexible process- and protocol-driven design strategically to create a safe and trusting environment to promote positive risk-taking and growth
  • Establishes an expectation for an ongoing reflective process and ownership of personalized and collaborative approaches to continual growth through cycles of feedback from leaders and colleagues
  • Provides relevant entry points and connections for teachers, leaders and all staff at all levels of their careers
  • Prioritizes authentic, job-embedded learning with ongoing support for implementation
  • Fosters culturally proficient practices

To make this vision a reality, we take action to cultivate a trusting culture of innovation and resilience where failure is an opportunity to move forward. We create conditions for success that include the collaborative time, high quality resources, embedded support and structures needed to implement high leverage practices that prepare students for success in college, career and life.
