ALEXANDRIA, VA—ASCD, as part of its remote and responsive professional development services, has launched a three-year partnership with the Milton Area School District in Northumberland County, Pa.

The partnership, which will initially be delivered fully remotely, will see the district's educators receive 120 hours of professional development per year. Professional learning will be led by influential ASCD authors Carol Tomlinson, Jay McTighe, and Kristina Doubet.

A key focus will be building the capacity of teachers, administrators, and instructional coaches to differentiate their instruction and engage their students, whether they are learning remotely or in a classroom.

"Working with ASCD has been a true partnership. Their team set a regular schedule to listen and respond to our needs and worked alongside us as we crafted our plan together. I am excited to launch our partnership, which will enhance teaching and learning when our students and educators return to learning this fall and beyond," said Cathy Keegan, superintendent of the Milton Area School District. "Our partnership with ASCD demonstrates our ongoing commitment to our educators by providing exceptional resources and support."

ASCD's professional development services are holistic and provide support for every role within the school ecosystem. Its interactive professional development sessions will not only give teachers, administrators, and coaches the tools to differentiate their instruction and engage students, but also teach coaches and principals to measure student engagement in a remote learning setting.

"ASCD is excited to support Milton's mission to reach all students through dynamic and engaging teaching both online and in person," ASCD managing director of educational partnerships Matt Monjan said. "We look forward to working with Superintendent Keegan and her talented team of educators as we learn and teach together."
