Staff professional development will focus on the following areas for the 2017-2018 school year:

Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) and Core Skills
All teachers at Karshner are participating in the AVID program and will be supporting Core Skills concepts.  This includes training on how students are to be using organizational tools/planner, note-taking, Depth of Knowledge/more challenging levels of questioning, and collaboration. 

Reorganization of Response to Intervention (RTI) model
The RTI model requires that teachers meet on a regular basis to determine how students are performing in their overall academic programs. Teachers include classroom teachers, Special Education, Title I, LAP, and ELL.
