    Implementing the National Staff Development Standards
    MPS has adopted the National Staff Development Standards. The National Staff Development Council's (NSDC) revised Standards for Staff Development reflect what NSDC and the broader staff development community have learned about professional learning since the creation of the original standards in 1995. The staff development standards provide guidance for MPS in designing staff development experiences that ensure staff acquires the necessary knowledge and skills to be successful in their work.
