Research demonstrates that the most important factor in student academic success is an effective teacher. To ensure that every student in Maricopa County is college and career ready by graduation, Maricopa County Education Service Agency is dedicated to supporting educators in their professional development as teachers and leaders.
Professional learning opportunities in targeted subject areas are offered through a variety of formats, such as Professional Learning Communities, online instructional environments and interactive video conferencing.
Reading for the Stars – our flagship reading and literacy initiative – combines professional learning for educators with a program for students focused on personal goal setting and reading achievement.
