Professional Learning Plan

Start your journey for Professional Learning by investigating these topics.

At the Santa Cruz County Office of Education (COE) we believe that relevant, research based and effective Professional Development is critical to support teachers and other educators in ensuring the success of students in all areas. 

The COE is committed to offering a variety of Professional Development, based on needs assessments and current best practices, for teachers and educators throughout the school year and summer. 

Our goal is always to keep students in mind and provide whatever is needed to ensure that their educational experiences are positive, equitable, successful and supportive of the “whole child”. 

This Professional Learning Plan encompasses our philosophy, our core values, our methods of delivering Professional Development, and both integrated and content specific offerings.
