The Professional Development Alliance provides a range of services to our sister agencies throughout Illinois and across the country, including Educational Service Agencies, Regional Offices of Education, Intermediate Service Centers, and Cooperatives (we'll collectively call them ESA's). We provide services from our areas of strength to other ESA's so that we may help to improve the field of education and educator professional development far outside of our mandated service area.
The consultants at the Professional Development Alliance are former teachers, principals, and superintendents who have had great success in those roles and have a desire to share their experience and knowledge with others. We can work with individual ESA administrators or consultants to improve their leadership skills, or we can work with groups of leaders at the ESA. All consultations are held in the strictest confidence. Areas of assistance include:
The Professional Development Alliance is conveniently located near the intersections of Interstate 55 and Interstate 80, making it a convenient meeting space. In addition to our location, organizations and committees love to use the PDA facilities for their meetings because of outstanding customer service provided by our Workshop Services crew and our technology support. Room Rentals are open to both public and private organizations, with no geographic restrictions. For more information, visit the Room Rentals web page.
