About Teachers' PD-INC

Teachers' Professional Development for Inland California

California State University, Chico; the Yuba City Unified School District; and the Sutter County Superintendent of Schools are working together to offer Teachers’ PD INC, a teacher professional development program for the 33 inland California counties from San Bernardino to Siskiyou and Modoc.

PD Inc LogoDuring the 2011-12 and 2012-13 academic years, Teachers’ PD INC awarded two-year grants of up to $30,000 to teams of three to five K-12 teachers working within the inland California region. Teachers’ PD INC supports “teacher-driven” professional development to address questions or problems directly related to teachers’ classroom practice. Over two school years participating teachers select professional development, create interventions, and conduct action research to assess the impact of their interventions.

The program seeks to support innovative school improvement through teacher-driven professional development. The ultimate goal of Teachers’ PD INC is to help teachers implement changes that will increase student achievement. To see information on projects go to our "Team Projects" link on the menu.
