Professional Development


The Dougherty Group employs and contracts instructional designers, subject matter experts, and trainers expert in their respective educational fields; this team is overseen by Erinn Dougherty and the executive team to design, implement, and deliver professional development to your school district or site.  We are happy to provide references upon request  from diverse school communities (k8, k12, 9-12, public, charter, Diocesan, private).  Our base rate for a 1/2 day professional development is $2,500.00, and our base rate for a full day professional development is $4,000.00.  Rates are dependent on topic and needs assessment; they reflect an hourly rate of $150.00 per hour for the project; rates and professional development are tailored to best meet the goals of each respective school community. 

The Dougherty Group does not "can" or recycle professional development, nor do we feel that "one PD fits all schools."  You will work with your instructional designer before delivery of your professional development to fully address the goals, needs, gap analysis, and community of your school in relation to the topic you have selected.  Three 1-hour consultations are scheduled at the client's request after accepted RFPs and included in your deposit. 

Please understand that additional fees may be added for professional developments not scheduled 6 weeks in advance.  We look forward to meeting your professional development needs. Please contact us today to begin your professional development journey.
