Professional Development

The York School Department maintains a strong commitment to providing a coordinated and comprehensive professional development program for educators.

Guided by the York Educational Strategic Plan and the Professional Development Plan, the York Administrative Team and the K-12 Leadership Team coordinate professional development offerings that include:
  • Through collaboration with the UMO Center for Comprehensive Literacy, graduate level literacy courses are available on-site in York, taught by our own, highly trained Teacher Leaders. York is a leading training center for elementary literacy teachers in southern Maine.
  • A focus on providing educators with support to implement 21st Century Learning in their classrooms.
  • A yearly Summer Institute that brings together educators from various school systems for shared professional development
  • A focus on technology integration offerings, through Summer Institute and regular district newsletters.
  • Professional Learning Communities that support continued professional reflection and growth at each school
  • Leadership opportunities through K-12 Teams
  • Collaboration with local universities, including the University of Southern Maine and the University of Maine.
  • Tuition reimbursement options for advanced studies

York teachers are encouraged to pursue National Board Certification through a rigorous, competitive process.
