Boone County School District
Classified Professional Academy
Staff Support Training Program Overview
After initial Frontline training, surveys were taken to find out what types of training our staff support were interested in pursuing. From this information the initiative of a comprehensive program of training for classified professionals has been implemented. The program is designed to help individuals successfully expand their knowledge and skills as professional staff support. The goal of the Classified Professional Academy is to provide an avenue for training and activities to address common needs, specifically those related to professional office staff support roles and responsibilities.
The Classified Professional Academy is a recognition program to encourage professional growth and renewal through courses offered through Boone County Schools.
