What our school partners say about us….

Exemplary MO PLC Project Sessions

“I can’t say enough about the support the UMKC RPDC provides for Guadalupe Centers Charter Schools! Their professional, positive and research-based support sessions and leaders are exemplary. We have really benefited from participating in the MO PLC Project program led by Julie Stevenson & Kelly Nash.”

Strategies to Strengthen Instruction

“I have had the opportunity to work closely with the RPDC consultants for the past eight years. In our combined planning sessions for working with teachers and administrators, I was able to share what intended outcomes the district was seeking in the professional development. Both the professional development at the RPDC and on-site provided necessary information to provide strategies and information to strengthen instruction”.

Great Customized Programs

“We have partnered with the Kansas City RPDC for many trainings and projects.  The staff is very knowledgeable and they go out of their way to customize their support to best meet our needs.  If I need in-district training or planning support that requires an outside expert, my first call is to the UMKC RPDC!”

Our Schools are Improving Through RPDC Sessions

“The professional learning opportunities offered by UMKC-RPDC have been instrumental in enhancing the professional knowledge of teachers and staff in the Hickman Mills C-1 School District. We have taken advantage of multiple trainings offered to include the Instructional Coaches Network, School-Wide Positive Behavior Supports, and the Administrator Book Study. As a result of the professional development sessions and on-site consulting, we have seen improvements across all participating schools.”
