PD 360, the leading on-demand professional development platform, is chosen by the readers of District Administration magazine as a 2011 Readers’ Choice Top 100 Product

We realize that our continued presence on this list means that leaders in the field of education understand the value of our product, and what’s more, that they are using it every day to improve the condition of their classrooms.

For the second consecutive year, PD 360 has been honored by the readers of District Administration Magazine with being ranked among the top education improvement products. The publication’s Top 100 list is occupied by a who’s who of companies, from Apple, to Disney and Amazon. The products and services that these companies provide are contributing to teacher improvement all over the world, and are quickly closing the achievement gap.

“We are proud to make District Administration’s top product list again,“ says Chet Linton, CEO of School Improvement Network, the creators of PD 360, “not just because of the elite company it puts us in, but because of what it says about the voters, most of whom are school administrators. We realize that our continued presence on this list means that leaders in the field of education understand the value of our product, and what’s more, that they are using it every day to improve the condition of their classrooms. We see this fact confirmed in growth of schools that sign up for PD 360 and our other products, Observation 360 and Common Core 360. Teachers who use our product regularly are facilitating dramatic jumps in student achievement, and commonly seeing test scores rise by two to fifteen times district averages. We thank the readers of district magazine, who are clearly as excited about PD 360 as we are.”
