Learner-Centered Professional Development (LCPD) Model

The Learner-Centered Professional Development (LCPD) Model is chosen each year to participate in this model that links research and knowledge-based strategies with school engagement.  It involves creating a collaborative team of teachers, administrators, and parents to actively construct their knowledge as they work together to improve school-family relations.

The NEOA team supports and organizes collaborative team meetings to discuss strategies such as identification of problems; discussing proven, research-based strategies applicable to improving school-family relationships; selecting strategies suitable for the school environment; and implementing a plan with support from the NEOA team
