Making a Difference with Professional Development that is Different

“High-quality professional learning by all teachers is critically important if we want high-quality learning in all classrooms and if we want to sustain and retain competent teachers throughout their careers.”                               

Dennis Sparks, 2007

Welcome to NJPA Education Solutions

In 2011, the Board of National Joint Powers Alliance rejuvenated their focus on educational services for the Region V Service Cooperative with the introduction of NJPA Education Solutions. School districts and educational entities are able to access a growing venue of educational services in professional development for teacher leaders and administration; collaborative, educational opportunities; and educational contract purchasing. These opportunities for professional development are different because the options are designed to be job-embedded, provided on-site, ongoing throughout the year, evidence-based, and driven by data.

NJPA’s Education Solutions  is dedicated to serving education in your schools, classrooms, and professional development.
