School Improvement Network, the premier provider of comprehensive, online, on-demand professional development for educators, will join forces with Learning Forward at the upcoming Learning Forward Conference. The annual conference, one of the most far-reaching education industry gatherings in the United States, will be held this December 3rd through December 7th at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California

“School Improvement Network’s relationship with Learning Forward really is a family affair,” said Chet Linton, CEO of School Improvement, “It’s a long-running partnership founded on the work we each do to improve education in all K-12 schools in North America and beyond. Both organizations are pioneers in the field of educator development—Learning Forward, established as NSDC (National Staff Development Council) in 1969, is dedicated to improving student achievement through effective professional learning; School Improvement Network is revolutionizing professional development for educators by making instruction available through hundreds of video segments, topics and courses and other online resources.”

In addition to its established, ever-expanding library of award-winning professional development videos, School Improvement Network is excited to introduce Common Core 360, a suite of products designed to help educators understand what the Common Core Standards are, and how to use them in the classroom. The School Improvement booth will feature information about Common Core 360 along with its array of award-winning, professional development products.

School Improvement Network will again be one of the major conference sponsors, along with such respected organizations as The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, The Wallace Foundation, and Corwin.

“We are all very proud to be a part of this respected conference again,” added Linton. “We’re especially honored to be able to sponsor the annual awards, and I was pleasantly surprised when Learning Forward asked me to hand out the awards during the Tuesday morning general session. This ceremony is one of my favorite parts of the event, because it so clearly spotlights the educational contributions a strong focus on teacher development provides.”
