Poway Unified School District is one the most outstanding districts in the nation. I was employeed in the district (1988-92). The staff was talented because they seeked personal and professional development to improve teaching and learning. The administration provided opportunities for growth and incentives (TIPS - Teacher Improvement Plans, financed – more... by the district for individual teachers to implant innovative change) for excellence. Teachers were rewarded with perks for accomplishments. The administration engaged staff in a values driven strategic plan to provide meaningful change and accountability. The business community supported schools with partnerships and with expertise. Teachers and staff were valued for their professional contributions. A culture of excellence created a work environment and community support that allowed all learners to be highly successful. – less
