Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) September 05, 2013
School Improvement Network, the leader in educator effectiveness resources, today announced a case study showing how a rural Montana school district decreased student discipline and increased educator effectiveness using School Improvement Network’s PD 360.
"Actively engaging students in the learning process is a critical component of educator effectiveness, and one of the most effective ways to decrease student discipline incidents," said Chet Linton, CEO and president of School Improvement Network. "Years of research has shown that increased educator effectiveness, higher student proficiency and decreased student discipline incidents are consistent results for high utilizers of PD 360."
PD 360 is the most widely used online professional development solution in the US. It offers the largest library of expert-produced training videos, powerful support tools and resources, and an online professional learning community of nearly one million educators to help increase educator effectiveness, raise student proficiency, and decrease student discipline incidents as well as premature teacher turnover.
Independent research shows that schools and districts with high engagement in PD 360 see decreases in student discipline issues by as much as 33.2% per year.
