Abstract

This paper examines staff development spending among Minnesota districts. While several scholars have provided qualitative descriptions of professional development opportunities, less is known about how much is spent on this training and its implications for organizational competence. Providing appropriate support to faculty helps them to better traverse varied school and community settings. This is an important topic because investing in the efficacy of teachers is crucial for building organizational competency within school systems. Copyright © 2015 29th Annual UCEA Convention.
