Professional And Committed Staff

The Children's Aid College Prep Charter School aims for 90% of staff being satisfied or very satisfied with the level of support received to positively impact student growth and achievement and 100% of staff report growth in 1 or more areas of their professional growth plan. This will lead to each staff member having an individual professional development plan and the Principal and Community School Director will have a plan for individual teacher support and school-wide professional development. Staff will be aware of the needs of all students and have a comprehensive plan for addressing those needs supported by strong cross-functional collaboration.
