Professional Development Information



    Missouri has recognized that professional learning is vital to engaging and impactful student learning.  Missouri has established specific legislation to guide the Professional Development of Missouri teachers by developing an in-depth, organized, systemic approach to professional learning.  

    The Houston R-1 School District continues to strive for excellence in meeting all the requirements for professional development to provide the greatest impact on student achievement. 

    Annually the school board is presented with the Professional Development Plan that aligns the work of professional growth with the district’s Comprehensive School Improvement Plan (CSIP) goals. 

    The district has an established Professional Development Committee that hasteachers, instructional coaches and administrators serving the district to  identify areas to enhance instruction and growth, ensure appropriate allocation of resources for professional development opportunities and assist with individual professional development plans.
