Continuous, insightful and innovative professional development and growth is essential to the effectiveness of educators.
Providing quality professional development opportunities to Bennington’s teachers is critical to their growth and effectiveness, which in turn, directly impacts our students.
The Foundation is pleased to partner with the district to offer funding to allow teachers to attend national professional development conferences, workshops or institutes. Funds will help educators cover the cost of registration, travel, lodging and the expense of hiring substitute teachers.

Dr. Dee Hoge, Bennington School District Curriculum Director stated, “I would estimate that the return on investment (professional development during the school improvement and accreditation process) was tripled by the work and leadership roles these teachers assumed for multiple years after this opportunity.”
