Professional Development/Testing Mrs. Chiqueta Daniels

Welcome to the GLCSD Professional Development Department

The purpose of professional development is school improvement. School improvement occurs where there is ongoing, embedded professional development.

Professional learning consists of a number of activities that are designed to improve the knowledge and skills of employees with school improvements being the main goal and are aligned to the Mississippi Learning Forward standards. (More information about the Learning Forward Standards is available at

It is the intent of the school district that a professional learning program be established which will provide an opportunity for the continuous professional and technical growth of all personnel employed by the school district. Because the professional learning program is viewed as crucial to the district's success, all employees are required to participate in the program. Guidelines for the professional learning program are continuously refined by state law and regulations promulgated by the Mississippi Department of Education.

The school district's professional development program is designed to improve instruction by providing on-going professional development opportunities to educators and staff in the district. In addition to the district, each school also develops a professional development plan each year. All plans are based on needs assessments that solicit feedback from teachers, parents and students, as well as other data collected during the school year.
