Professional Development

Kannapolis City Schools believes that learning is not just for children.  Our goal for professional development is to improve student success by increasing the knowledge and skills of our staff members. Through comprehensive needs assessment, collaboration with colleagues, targeted and differentiated professional development workshops, follow-up coaching support, and a culture of constant improvement, KCS aims to meet the learning needs of our educators.
