Santa Cruz City Schools supports site-based professional development.
Professional learning is facilitated by the Santa Cruz Instructional
Leadership (SCIL) Team ,
which is composed of teacher leaders and the Principal at each school
site. Each school site's SCIL team plans monthly professional
development aligned to district and school plan goals.
SCIL teams come together for summer training each August and set
goals for professional learning each year. The primary venue for
professional development is the first Wednesday of each month during
early release time.
