Florida School District Builds Educator Professional Development System to Create Efficiencies
Ensuring an Effective Educator for Every Student
Sandy, UT (May 25, 2011) – Escambia County School District in Florida recently partnered with Truenorthlogic, an award-winning provider of K-12 human capital management solutions, to build a comprehensive adult learning platform. The new system combines many cumbersome department processes through automation, creating efficiencies and cost savings during these budget-constraint times. The new system will provide a powerful range of professional learning opportunities and resources, linking evaluation with professional development opportunities specific to individual needs. The goal of this system is to provide structured professional development to teachers, leaders, and staff in an effort to help all school employees grow in a meaningful way ultimately impacting student achievement.
“In the past, we tracked professional development plans, in-service components, and awarding credit in separate systems. We believe we found our solution with Truenorthlogic; now they will all be linked together,” said Dr. Karen Owen, Director, Staff Development, Escambia County School District.
“We are honored to work with Escambia in their efforts towards improving educator professional development and effectiveness. We look forward to working together to implement a state of the art professional learning system that not only creates efficiencies for the district, but will positively impact educators and students,” said Jeanette Haren, CEO and Co-Founder, Truenorthlogic.
Once phase one of implementation, scheduled for the 2011-2012 school year is complete, the sky’s the limit. Escambia County School District and Truenorthlogic plan to continue to partner on future projects including linking certification, student assessment and Human Resources systems.
