School Improvement Network today announced new research linking student achievement and teacher effectiveness to on-demand professional learning. Results suggest that when teachers are highly engaged in on-demand professional learning, student achievement increases. The research also shows a link between educator engagement in professional learning with a reduction in dropout rates and student discipline issues and an increase in teacher retention. The findings were presented today in Washington, D.C. at an event focused on building teacher effectiveness through professional learning.

Schools with high engagement in on-demand professional learning experienced improved outcomes in four key areas:

  • Increases in Teacher Retention
  • Lower Dropout Rates
  • Fewer Student Discipline Issues
  • Increases in Numbers of Students with College-Related Goals

This is the seventh independent research study commissioned by School Improvement Network to determine positive impact in the classroom. To read the full study, click here.
