PALS Professional Development

Make the connections between PALS data and effective literacy intervention and classroom instruction.

PALS supports teachers, literacy staff and administrators throughout the school year with access to professional development that is time-sensitive and valuable!  Our library of topics goes beyond the PALS assessment, with literacy-related topics of interest and value to any grade level.

All teachers and administrators who use PALS have access to basic administration tutorials through your PALS Online System accounts.
