Welcome to Northwest Missouri RPDC!

Mission

The mission of the Northwest Regional Professional Development Center is to build the capacity of educators and schools to maximize student performance through high quality professional development.

Vision

Professional development and support for schools is delivered through regional learning centers comprised of content specialists with expertise to meet school/district needs. These teams model a collaborative, seamless learning community and facilitate goal-alike networks to promote and sustain effective schools.

Goals

  1. Raise achievement for all students and close the achievement gap among subgroups.
  2. Increase the quality of teachers and administrators in the region.
  3. Increase reading, math, science, and social studies achievement in the region through the high quality professional development of teachers.

Just as the quality of instruction that students receive has a tremendous impact on their performance, the quality of mentoring that new teachers receive can significantly influence their development.

FIRST YEAR TEACHER INDUCTION AND MENTORING

This system of support and optional in-district coaching provides a district with the infrastructure to develop a confident beginning. Both the new teacher and mentor need to register. Please contact NWRPDC for more information regarding the in-district coaching.

SECOND YEAR TEACHER INDUCTION AND MENTORING

Continued support is available for both the second-year teacher and mentor in year two of the two-year induction process. Both the teacher and mentor need to register.
