The Idaho Falls School District is committed to supporting its teachers by providing them with the opportunity, time and resources to become exceptional teachers. Study after study shows that great teachers are the single most important factor in a child’s success.
To ensure that our children thrive, we believe in staff development that:
- substantially increases a teacher’s knowledge and teaching skills
- is high-quality, sustained, intensive, and classroom-focused
- advances teacher understanding of effective instruction based on scientifically based research
- an integral part of broad school-wide and district-wide education improvement plans.
