Effective professional learning strives to improve educator practice thereby increasing student achievement.

This model stresses the importance of growth and changes in teaching strategies that promote positive, measurable student outcomes.

NSSEO has moved to a new professional learning platform called KickUp, which will provide you with a user-friendly way to register for professional development events throughout the year and to track your professional learning hours. We are phasing out Learning Stream, and as of June 1st all registration links will be through kick up. 

You can simply click on the district link below to begin creating your account. Please note: you will need to use your district email address for your account creation and log-in. After the initial setup, you can always visit to access your PD information.

Here is a quick guide to orient you to the basic actions you might take in KickUp, including information about how to contact KickUp’s technical support team if you run into any issues with utilizing the technology. And here is a 5-minute screencast to show you more specifically what this looks like.
