MPS Administrators and Faculty Go to School Too!

The beginning of the year not only brings about "reading, writing, and arithmetic" for students, it also brings professional development for those who stand before the class, and those whose responsibility is to lead the district. MPS Administrators and Faculty met just prior to classes beginning, for the purpose of improving and increasing the capabilities of all staff through presentations, training, activities, and the sharing of information with one another. Professional development helps to build and maintain morale of staff members and is thought to attract higher quality staff to an organization.

We are all life-long learners!
