Professional Development

LCPS is committed to attracting, training, and retaining quality educators, because we truly believe that qualified and competent faculty and staff provide the best learning opportunities for our students.

With more than eight Virginia universities and community colleges close by, our teachers have many numerous opportunities for continuing education and professional growth. In addition to campus access, we provide a comprehensive professional development program for all staff members that includes district-wide and school-based workshops, college and university courses on-site, and conferences.Supporting teaching and learning in and out of the classroom is our top priority, and it starts from day one. In addition to the professional support in the classroom, each school designates instructional money to pay for classroom materials.Playing games
