Staff Development

Westbrook-Walnut Grove Schools has an active Staff Development program whose broad goal is to increase student learning by increasing the faculty's skills. The faculty is engaged in Professional Learning Communities (PLCs) within the district and with teachers from other districts, and takes part in seminars, workshops, and independent activities that positively impact student learning.

For the benefit of the faculty and community, the Westbrook Walnut Grove Staff Development program makes public the scope of our activities through this website, through state reports, and through our PER reports. For specific information, please click the buttons on the right or contact Loy Woelber, the chairperson of the Westbrook Walnut Grove Staff Development Committee.
