CPP Online Handbook: Comprehensive Plan

Staff Development

Teacher qualifications are a critical component of a high quality program. Research shows that higher education levels and ongoing training for teachers can improve teacher-child interaction and improve children’s learning

To document how your program addresses this area, you may consider including in your comprehensive plan:

  • An update on how program staff are meeting CDHS licensing requirements for teachers and directors
  • A summary of program staff qualifications and credentials
  • A description of the school district/program policy for staff education levels and backgrounds
  • An update on the current year’s ongoing training of staff (e.g. workshops attended, course work completed)
  • A description of the mentoring/coaching model used by the program
  • Awards and recognition that staff have received (from the school, board, community)
