NEW!! RIDE Requests Feedback and Input on Rhode Island Professional Learning Standards

RIDE is excited to announce that a draft set of Rhode Island Professional Learning Standards is ready for feedback and input. We know from our SurveyWorks data that our educators are hungry for strong professional learning experiences. We also know that educator voice in strengthening professional learning systems is critical. To that end, we invite educators across Rhode Island to take this short (10-15 minutes) survey. The survey will gather feedback on how well this draft set of standards captures important aspects of strong professional learning systems and ask for suggestions to improve the current draft of the standards. Thank you in advance for your thoughtful engagement with these standards! With your help, we can make them a strong starting place for improving professional learning across our state.

Please note the survey will close on December 15, 2017.
