Professional Learning

Your Growth = Student Growth and Achievement  

A career in APS means constant growth and new opportunities. We invest in varied professional learning, growth, and development opportunities to build the capacity of our staff to serve the diverse needs of our students and families.


Arlington Public Schools provides differentiated and job-relevant professional learning that enables all employees to develop desired skills and expertise to achieve their goals and meet the diverse needs of our students.


Professional learning drives collaboration and builds the knowledge and expertise of all employees, to advance student outcomes and improve division-wide performance, productivity, job satisfaction, and retention.
