• Teachers collaboratingDelaware’s vision is that every learner across the state leaves school ready for success in college, career, and life. In order to achieve this vision, teachers must provide students with high-quality, standards-aligned instruction every day. For teachers to be fully prepared for every lesson, school leaders must then provide teachers with standards-aligned instructional materials and the support needed to use those materials well.

     Globally, professional learning is defined as a comprehensive, sustained, and intensive approach to improving educators’ effectiveness in raising student achievement. Professional learning that is directly aligned to standards and curriculum leads to improvement in: educator practice, student achievement, and school outcomes.

     In 2012, Delaware’s Professional Standards Board adopted statewide professional learning standards that are grounded in Learning Forward’s standards. The Delaware Standards for Professional Learning describe the context, processes, and content for effective, high-quality professional learning, and set clear expectations at the state, district, and school level.
