As Chalkboard Project works with teachers and school administrators across Oregon to improve student achievement and expand opportunity, our conversations often come back to meaningful professional learning for educators.

There is no question that a top-notch workforce—highly skilled and trained—is essential to improving student achievement. And it’s not just about the coursework teachers take in college, but the ongoing learning opportunities they engage in throughout their careers.
