Teacher Career Ladder

Maryland PDS 2025 Project Teacher Career Ladder (TCL)

The Maryland PDS 2025 Project will explore the Teacher Career Ladder roles and opportunities that are proposed in recentMaryland legislation (Blueprint for Maryland’s Future). Beginning in January 2021, the Teacher Career Ladder Workgroup will design and prepare implementation recommendations  for a professional development trajectory  system that supports teachers in different phases of the career. The workgroup will design and pilot new professional roles for practicing teachers in MCPS and PGCPS that recognize excellence and support ongoing professional learning. The workgroup will also design and analyze data from a pilot cohort of teachers in the various career ladder roles in participating schools.
