Participate in Professional Development Opportunities

Participate in educational webinars and professional development opportunities.  Health and physical education teachers must have access to curriculum consistent with national education standards and professional development activities.  Managing a school food service program requires a diverse skill set, and thus it is important that food service staff receive appropriate training and have opportunities for professional development.
