Teacher Quality & Professional Development

The goal of the Office of Teacher Quality and Professional Development (TQPD) is to support PK-12 administrators, teachers, and other education stakeholders in building and sustaining systems and practices that are conducive to vibrant teaching and learning environments.

Our primary foci are high quality professional development and highly qualified and effective teaching. We also provide resources and tools to assist educators in developing effective systems and practices related to planning, needs assessment, goal-setting, professional development provision and evaluation, mentoring, teacher and principal recruitment and retention, and school climate and culture.
