    About Us 

     
    The Department of Curriculum, Instruction, and Professional Learning (CIPL) offers a variety of services to schools, districts, students, teachers, administrators, parents, and community members.
     
    We provide customized professional learning opportunities for educators and offer consortium-based public/private agreements for high quality educational programs, products, and services. One of our roles is to serve as a liaison between the Pennsylvania Department of Education and our member schools to communicate key initiatives and implementation of regulations and legislation. Another key role for this department is to communicate to PDE the impact mandates and initiatives have on local education agencies and assist in providing recommendations for change.
     
    Curriculum, Instruction, and Professional Learning is at the center of a connected network of education professionals and policy-makers. In this capacity, we provide leadership in instructional initiatives, technology integration, and proactive human resource development. To explore the many services we can provide, follow the links below.
