Welcome to Garfield Heights City Schools LPDC

The committee defines High Quality Professional Development (HQPD) according to the Ohio Standards of Professional Development. HQPD is defined as an on-going, systematic process, linked to the daily practice of educators and based on data-driven needs.

The goal of the Garfield Heights Professional Development Committee is two-fold: to promote and encourage high quality professional staff development and to insure a fair and equitable processing of licensure.

The five characteristics of HQPD are:

  1. A purposeful, structured and continuous process that occurs over time;
  2. Determined by multiple sources of data;
  3. Collaborative;
  4. Includes varied learning experiences;
  5. Is evaluative by short and long-term impact on professional practice and student achievement; and
  6. Is aligned with personal, building, district, state and national goals.
