YES Prep Public Schools

Professional Development

Whether you are new to teaching, have been in the classroom for less than one year, or are seeking certification, YES Prep offers consistent development differentiated to your needs. For teachers new to YES Prep and for those looking for leadership development, we offer specialized, rigorous programming.

Instructional Development

New teacher development: If you are new to teaching or have been in the classroom for less than one year, we provide comprehensive training and support, as well as a certification pathway, through our Teaching Excellence program.

Experienced teachers new to YES Prep: If you are an experienced teacher transitioning to YES Prep, we have the ‘New to Blue’ program that is designed to help you successfully transition into your new environment and integrate your skills into the YES Prep culture and curriculum.

Non-instructional Campus Development

The YES Prep Leadership Pathway kicked off in the 2022-2023 school year to pave a compelling path of growth for campus-based leaders between the manager and director levels roles. Under this umbrella, we hired Resident Directors & Resident Assistant Principals, under the guidance of Lead Directors & Lead Assistant Principals, to ensure that YES Prep is building an internal bench of high-performing talent. Not only are these paid positions, but leaders in this program have access to aligned training, development, coaching, and evaluation, and can use these tools to chart a path of career growth within our organization and beyond. 

YES Prep Leading Excellence program aims to provide the best leadership development programming in the nation. We cultivate, recruit and retain top leaders. We empower merging leaders to operate as change agents in the fight for educational equity. Every campus-based Director, Resident Principal and Principal engage in a series of learning experiences grounded in our Leadership Competencies. Their development continues from year to year, as learning experiences help to augment their skills and scope of impact.

Preparation for school leadership: If you want to become a Principal, YES Prep offers leadership and tactical development through the Principal Pathway Program.
