About Us

The After School Professional Development Program (ASPDP) provides high-quality, low-cost learning opportunities to NYC DOE educators that meet their professional learning needs, support their progress toward career goals, develop their instructional practices, and lead to improved student learning. We partner with over 30 non-profits, museums, and specialized professional development providers to offer more than 130 courses per semester.

All NYC teachers are eligible to take ASPDP courses to further their own knowledge and improve their teaching practice. ASPDP courses can also be credited towards salary differential (+30) requirements as well as the NYS 100 hours of Professional Development requirement, with principal approval.

We hope to see you soon in an ASPDP course! Please contact us with any questions at ASPDP@schools.nyc.gov or 718-935-5753.
