School Improvement


Questar III’s School Improvement Department offers a diverse selection of regional and in-district courses and programs for all members of the education community. To encourage and support lifelong learning, training is offered in school districts and conference centers throughout Rensselaer, Columbia and Greene Counties, as well as online.

The services support best practices in curriculum and instruction driven by the state learning standards, assessments and current research. Professional development can be tailored to meet the specific needs of each school district and each school.
