The Connecticut Professional Development Coalition

The Connecticut Professional Development Coalition was formed to coordinate the efforts of the state's professional organizations in developing the capacity of school leaders to reduce the achievement gap.
The Connecticut State Department of Education (CSDE), the Connecticut Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development (CASCD), and the Connecticut Association of Schools (CAS), with support from the Wallace Foundation, collaborated to develop this website. Its purpose is to display in one place the professional development opportunities offered within the state focused upon reducing the achievement gap. The site is available during SY 2006-2007 to all professional development providers at no cost; participation beyond this year will be on a shared cost basis.Programs are referenced to and may be searched by the following:
