The Office of Academic Supports is committed to the continuous growth of all District teachers through ongoing professional development and coaching to ensure that students have access to an excellent public education. When we engage in well-constructed, engaging, and relevant professional learning, we refine our practice and we amplify our impact in the organization.  The School District of Philadelphia is a learning organization; therefore, ongoing learning is our professional responsibility. Learning is an active process, it is not done to you.  It is the intersection of giving and receiving. Professional learning can be in-person, synchronous, or asynchronous.
