Approaching Professional Growth for teachers...How the Diocese of Trenton arrived at their solution.


The Diocese is losing teachers to public schools for more pay, and experiencing an overall teacher shortage


An effective approach to enhance teacher practice is vital for professional success and overall retention.


Design a personalized approach to teacher professional development.

The solution: Implement a data-driven Professional Development Platform

Aligned with Dr. Schmidt’s vision and in an effort to effectively achieve the goals for his Catholic Schools, myEduscape® was implemented across the Diocese of Trenton. He and his team worked with the professional development experts at Eduscape to develop a plan to roll out the solution in the spring of 2023. With well-trained teachers who are supported in their development, the Diocese has positioned themselves to strategically reach the three-year goals they have identified!

The future: Cultivate Thriving Catholic schools

"For years, we have been encouraging educators to make data-informed decisions and give their students a voice in their learning. Yet, we have not applied this same approach to professional development for our teachers. The myEduscape platform puts learning in the hands of teachers using data-driven PD recommendations, allowing them to grow based on their own needs. We finally have a means to authentically respond to teachers' professional learning needs thanks to Eduscape."

-Bonnie Milecki, Assistant Superintendent - School Development & Operations
