K-12 Schools and Districts

Customized Professional Development

Schools and Districts Partner with PLS Classes

PLS Classes can support your school or district in many different ways including providing continuing education and staff development opportunities. Browse through the options below, or we will work with you to customize a plan based upon your needs.

Professional Development or Inservice Days

Our fully facilitated professional development or inservice days are customizable to fit the needs of your educators. Typically, we offer 4 hours of content and instruction based upon the focus area of one of our graduate courses, such as social-emotional development or differentiated instruction. An experienced instructor will come to your school to conduct the professional development or we can facilitate virtually as well.

Instructional Coaching

We offer an instructional coaching micro-credential where you will walk away with a better understanding of how you can use instructional coaching to benefit your school or district. We also offer one-on-one instructional coaching with world renowned education consultant, Steve Barkley. Barkley offers face-to-face and virtual workshops around the globe. Contact our team to find out how you can utilize our instructional coaching content in your school.

Group Discounts on Graduate Courses

Earning a master’s degree is crucial to teachers’ continued professional development and movement up the pay scale. And we know it can be a financial burden to educators just starting out. We offer discounts for participating districts that send participants to PLS Classes. We can work with you to determine a discounted rate based upon your district’s reimbursement policies. Reach out for more information on how we can help your educators complete a masters program with the help of PLS Classes.

Customized Cohorts

Customized cohorts allow for educators to work together within a class. Educators form their own group, choose  a course (or multiple courses) with an instructor of their choice. We offer incentives, such as gift cards, for creating cohorts of educators. The more educators who participate in a cohort the higher the incentive will be. This is a great option for new and experienced PLS Classes participants.
