Benefits of SpringBoard Professional Learning

SpringBoard program's high-quality professional learning is interactive and immersive, and it inspires educators to lead real change in their classrooms.

Evaluated and Vetted High-Quality Professional Learning

SpringBoard Professional Learning is featured in Rivet Education’s Professional Learning Partner Guide as being among the best curriculum-aligned professional learning services in the country. Our professional learning has been evaluated against a rigorous set of criteria by an expert review team to ensure our services are of the highest quality, and we’ve received a perfect score across all indicators. 

Partnership Builds Capacity and Boosts Student Performance

We want to help you make SpringBoard a success in your school or district. So, from the start, we work with your staff. We make sure your teachers know how to make the most of the program—and have the guidance they need to keep developing their skills. That means ongoing development and support for teachers, instructional coaches, and administrators at every stage of implementation, through our professional learning system  

How It Works

Our comprehensive offerings include multiday, face-to-face and virtual workshops and events for SpringBoard teachers; special-focus workshops; targeted preparation for instructional coaches; on-site observation and feedback; and online professional learning options.

Support for Each Role

Our professional learning system features three tiers of instruction that align to different levels of SpringBoard experience. Each tier contains offerings for each of our three audiences: teachers, administrators, and instructional coaches.

Taught by Teachers

SpringBoard institutes, events, and workshops are led by SpringBoard National Faculty—master SpringBoard teachers who share their expertise and firsthand experiences.

Interactive and Immersive

Attendees take an active part in professional learning. The facilitators model instruction, and participants learn from the student perspective to apply the program's instructional design in the classroom.

Connecting and Empowering Teachers

Professional learning events are opportunities for SpringBoard teachers to learn from their colleagues as they master the program's methodologies, content, and implementation models. The hands-on, collaborative activities encourage teachers to engage with one another.

What Teachers Are Saying

"Thinking back to my first experience—and again as a middle school teacher—it built my content knowledge, and I became incredibly confident about what I was doing in teaching rigor and what that looked like at my level."

Teacher, Washington

"One of the most powerful aspects of a SpringBoard training is that the people who are facilitating the training are SpringBoard teachers who know what it is like to teach SpringBoard every day to students."

Teacher, North Carolina

"It's really neat to watch how teachers grow within a week or within the three days that we offer training, but then [also] as the years progress. That it's not just a one-shot deal, that this is really a growth process that can help teachers to grow over a period of time."

Teacher, Florida

"SpringBoard was the most important single professional development experience I ever had because it's real, it's hands-on. You're engaging with colleagues, you're building a shared knowledge."
