SIOP Best Practices Staff Development
Morrow County School District embraces the philosophy that the professional development of their employees is essential in a rapidly changing society. To ensure that the District is encouraging the best classroom teaching methodologies, Morrow County School District has adopted a Best Practices Staff Development Program for their educators and administrators.
Central to the Best Practices Program is the Sheltered Instruction (SIOP) model. As a model of good teaching for all employees, SIOP is a research-based approach that will enhance and expand teacher's instructional practice. Providing a framework for well-prepared and well-delivered lessons, the SIOP approach helps educators make content comprehensible, thus enhancing learning outcomes from their students.
