Excellence in Professional Practice
Professional Development and Program Evaluation
Orange County Public Schools have a staff of over 24,000 with new employees daily.
We created tools to automatically enroll in PD courses based on attributes such as job titles, work location, and others.
To engage teachers and staff OCPS designed a PD catalog with a very graphical Netflix style. In some cases, PD has to be available for all employees with very small windows of time. OCPS has established processes for development and best practices of Professional Development course design using a learning management system to provide fully online courses, to blended and even use the LMS for face-to-face training opportunities.
