After School Professional Development Program

All teachers are eligible to take "P" in-service courses from the New York City Department of Education After School Professional Development Program (ASPDP). In-service courses offer teachers high-quality, convenient, low-cost alternatives to graduate-level courses that may be applied toward salary differentials and New York State professional development requirements. Courses are designed to support NYC school teachers in their pursuit of the vision that every child graduates from high school prepared for college, a career, and a future as a productive, critically thinking adult.

For the current course catalogue and registration information, visit the ASPDP website.
