The ultimate goal of professional learning is to improve teacher efficacy and student learning. While we strive to meet that goal, professional learning is also the vehicle that provides professional growth opportunities to all employees. Many of these opportunities are designed to advance the system mission, enhance employee's performance, and develop employee capacity to be competitive in the new global society. Professional learning exists to serve our customers by providing the processes, products, and services needed for high quality staff development that leads to desired results. Our goal is that every employee experiences high quality staff development as part of their daily work.
Gordon County's Department of Professional Learning supports best practices for professional/adult learning as suggested by the National Staff Development Council and the Georgia Staff Development Council.
