Individualized Professional Learning

AISC believes that the instructional programs offered by a school are directly influenced by the quality and appropriateness of the professional learning and development offered to the faculty. AISC also believes that these professional learning experiences must be directly related to the Mission, Core Values, Student Learning Objectives or other identified priorities of the school. Faculty are encouraged to create individual professional learning opportunities connect to and complementing school priorities.
