Professional Development

Fountain Valley School District's Professional Development Programs play a critical role in supporting the success of teachers and students.  Each year, a comprehensive professional development calendar is built with input from multiple stakeholders including teachers, principals, and district staff. 
 
Fountain Valley School District's team of Teachers on Special Assignment (TOSAs), each of whom has multiple years of classroom experience and intensive training within their area of expertise, help to ensure that FVSD professional development activities are accompanied by ongoing support.  The work of FVSD's TOSAs has been instrumental in helping teachers develop a repertoire of signature practices in English Language Arts and Mathematics.  In addition, to the TOSA team, FVSD has identified a cadre of Lead Teachers to support work in Science, Social Studies, and Physical Education.  Fountain Valley School District's commitment to developing the instructional skills and content area knowledge of staff across all content areas help to drive student achievement to high levels.
