Professional Development Options

  • There are a number of professional development options offered in the Olathe School District. Two of the most extensive events are also open to educators from outside the district. 

    The Summer Conference is held following the end of each school year. Olathe staff and nationally known consultants present a wide variety of concurrent professional development sessions for pre-kindergarten through senior high school educators, administrators, paraprofessionals and counselors. 

    The Advanced Placement (AP) Summer Institute brings together more than 350 teachers from the region and beyond. They collaborate with other professionals who are interested in moving student learning forward with the finest in AP training. This event takes place in July.
