Credit & Degree Information
In response to the increasing demand for high quality professional development opportunities for educators, Sachem Professional Development, Inc. was created. A unique collaboration between the Sachem Central Teachers’ Association and the Sachem Central School District, SPDI is designed to offer multiple offerings to meet all types of educational and professional development needs. All the course offerings and instructors are carefully scrutinized and approved by the Sachem Curriculum Council to guarantee that every SPDI offering is rigorous, current and satisfies the high standards one expects of a top quality educational association.
We are especially proud of our relationship with SUNY Stony Brook which enables teachers to earn a MALS degree at SPDI at a substantial savings.
Whether you are a Sachem teacher or not, it is our goal to have SPDI be your first option when the time comes for you to focus on your professional development. The SPDI staff will continue to work on developing new programs that will both challenge and reward you.
