Professional Development

Maine Department of Education encourages and supports the continuous learning of all Maine educators. How schools implement English language arts (ELA) standards is entirely a local decision, however, the Department offers these professional development resources that educators may find helpful as part of our commitment to Maine's learners. Through in-person events, webinars and other digital events, and by sharing free and open resources created in-state, with other states and by others, Maine DOE provides affordable learning opportunities. Department specialists are available for consulting with Maine schools.
