Professional Development Schools Initiative

Professional Development Schools (PDS) are collaboratively planned and implemented partnerships for the academic and clinical preparation of interns and the continuous professional development of both school system and institution of higher education (IHE) faculty. The focus of the PDS partnership is improved student performance through research-based teaching and learning.

PDS Implementation in Baltimore County Public Schools

BCPS’ Blueprint 2.0, Goal Four, indicates the importance of a comprehensive human resources management plan that addresses recruiting, selecting, developing, supporting, evaluating, and retaining highly qualified and effective staff at all levels of the organization. The Professional Development Schools Implementation Protocol ensures consistent procedures systemwide for the implementation of PDS partnerships.  All BCPS schools along with their IHE partners are required to follow the Professional Development Schools Implementation Protocol.
