LEADERSHIP IN LEARNING
The BTPS Board of Education and Division Administration are advocates of lifelong learning and of providing professional learning opportunities for all of our staff. We have a goal to attract, retain, and grow amazing staff and leaders.
This professional learning menu is part of our commitment to support you. We're really excited about offering so many online leadership opportunities, and will be adding more selections to the PL menu each year. A key feature of the menu is how easy it is for you to register. For this year, every item on this site is funded and supported by BTPS, and all administration related to payment is handled by the division office.
It really is this easy to find your lead domino and further your learning journey! There are many options to support growth in leadership, collaborate with others, and learn simple organizational tips.
