AESD: A Place For Everyone

Professional Development At AESD

Our staff has been GEARing up with professional development as we lead up to the first day back of school. Staff participated in day-long sessions that included teacher collaboration, data analysis, short and long-range goal setting to fit every student's needs.


In addition, our department staff had training to prepare to welcome our students back. Preschool, food and nutrition, transportation and paraprofessionals all engaged in new learning.
