Professional Learning Recognition Program for Education Support Professionals

In 2011, the WCSD Staff Development Council developed the Professional Learning Recognition Program for Education Support Professionals (ESPs). The Council conducted needs assessment surveys in 2011 and 2014, studied models from other organizations, worked collaboratively to develop a framework model, and created criteria for success. Some of the benefits of the program are as follows:

  • Quality and rigor in professional learning
  • Potential for advancement
  • Recognition from staff members
  • Effectiveness in planning for professional growth
  • Choice among a variety of job-specific class offerings

During the 2017-2018 school year, nearly 400 WCSD ESP employees received recognition for completing a minimum of 9.5 professional learning hours.
