Professional Development


District Vision
Our vision of the ideal school is one in which all students are actively and intellectually engaged in their learning as a result of instructional practices that are personalized, differentiated, innovative, and designed to challenge their thinking and understanding. The result of our collective efforts is for all students to achieve their personal best and become meaningful contributors to our society.

MA Standards for High Quality Professional Development
Mansfield Public Schools is committed to providing high quality professional
development in alignment with the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education
(DESE) standards for high quality professional development. Specifically, the District is
committed to providing coherent learning experiences that are purposeful and structured over a sustained period of time with the goal of improving teacher practices and student outcomes. Professional development will enable educators to facilitate student achievement/growth by acquiring and applying knowledge, skills, and abilities that address the needs of all learners and the improvement goals of the district, school, and individual.
