Supporting student achievement by providing professional development for all teachers and leaders through innovation, experimentation, and collaboration.

SLPS Mission

The mission of the St. Lucie Public Schools is to ensure all students graduate from safe and caring schools, equipped with the knowledge, skills, and desire to succeed.

Talent Development Mission

If we provide quality professional learning for our teachers aligned to the SLPS Framework for Quality Instruction and Florida Standards, then teachers will transfer learning to their classrooms and school site to increase student achievement, as measured by multiple accountability indicators.


All employees in SLPS benefit from a cohesive, sustained, job-embedded system of support to meet the needs of all students.
