About PPD

Programs & Professional Development provides professional development opportunities to administrators and teachers within the region. As a department, we try to keep abreast of the newest educational information and pass that knowledge on to our clients. We act as a liaison between the New York State Department of Education and local school districts. 

Our services include workshops, trainings such as DASA and school violence prevention, fire/bus safety demonstrations, MakerSpaces and more.  We are also the regional coordinator for the Odyssey of the Mind program and are the home of the School Library System.

Our department is staffed by professionals who are well trained and versatile in all areas of current educational need and educational trends. We are highly qualified to provide training in a variety of subjects and initiatives.
