What is Teacher Choice?

  • The Teacher Choice Program was established to allow teachers opportunities to pursue professional development in exchange for 2 paid workdays in November. For the 2022-23 school year, these days are November 21 and 22. Each of these days is provided in exchange for 6 hours of professional development totaling 12 hours for the 2 workdays.

Why does North East have a Teacher Choice Program?

High Performing schools understand the relationship between effective teachers and high student achievement.
Since these schools strive to create a culture that values teacher learning and growth, they make quality professional development an essential component of their improvement plans.
