Professional Development: Overview

Vision Statement
Cambridge Public Schools is a multi-generational learning organization built on a foundation of academic excellence and a commitment to promoting an environment of social justice. We are committed to high quality, sustained, data driven professional learning for all educators that builds our capacity to affect student learning across our diverse population. We foster a professional environment of mutual support and responsibility through adult learning that is collaborative, embedded in daily practice, grounded in research and student outcomes, and that balances the needs of individuals, teams, schools, the district, and the state.
