One of our biggest goals for the year is to create an infrastructure that will have the capacity to focus on high-quality professional growth of staff. We decided to engage with Hanover because we needed an outside ‘eye’ to provide recommendations and best practices concerning our greatest needs. We anticipate the Professional Development Project having the biggest impact on our institution—if we can improve all of the adults in our division, then outcomes for students will improve, and that is what public education is about. Institutions do not have all of the answers, therefore seeing different perspectives is crucial.
