About Inservice and Minimum (Modified) Days


Inservice and minimum school days allow for professional and staff development.

Upland Unified School District believes that high quality, research-based staff development is essential to continuous improvement of teaching skills and concepts. The district provides or coordinates ongoing training that is aligned with the District Strategic Achievement Plan and Board Goals. 

Teachers and administrators participate in conferences and workshops throughout the year that
allow them to grow professionally and provide opportunities for collegial sharing.

Teacher with BooksSome of those workshops included Effective Teaching, Curriculum Alignment and Mapping, Project GLAD, GATE certification, math, writing, reading and intervention strategies, Academic Vocabulary, and Too Good for Drugs. The Beginning Teacher Support and Assessment (BTSA) program provides support to beginning and veteran teachers.

The Peer Assistance and Review Program is in place to provide support to teachers in the areas of content area knowledge and teaching strategies.

Currently, the district offers four staff development days annually and at Pepper Tree Elementary School, 56-minimum days are dedicated to staff development.

Please see our School Calendar for teacher inservice days.
