The Falk School community is committed to ongoing professional development of faculty and staff members. The Falk School Faculty and Staff Professional Development Fund will provide resources to defray the costs of professional conferences, workshops and training, and other opportunities determined to provide direct benefit to faculty and staff members’ career at Falk.
What will this award mean to Falk School?
It is important for faculty and staff at any school stay updated on current trends and new developments in education and their respective fields, but we feel this is especially important to do at a progressive, laboratory school like Falk. Each day our faculty and staff encourage students to take risks, explore the far reaches of their imagination, ask questions and share ideas – we want to encourage them to do the same! The positive impact of continued professional development extends beyond the individual faculty and staff member to the classroom and student experience.
What is our goal?
Our goal is to raise $10,000 over the course of our campaign, which will run through June 30, 2021. Our ultimate goal is to raise enough to form an endowed fund, forever cementing the Falk School community’s commitment to faculty and staff professional development.
