The nation’s top subject-matter experts
on the issues you care about

Your teams have a lot on their plates. Sometimes it’s hard to know where to start.

The OESCA Executive Leadership Series was designed to connect school leaders with highly knowledgeable K-12 subject-matter experts, dive-deep on critical challenges, and engage in real problems of practice to effect lasting change in your schools.

Note: In response to feedback from ESCs and member districts that it would be difficult to commit to live sessions early in the school year, we’ve transitioned this year’s offering to a fully asynchronous program using RocketPD’s LaunchPad learning portal. Learn more and sign up below.

As an educator, you want to advance your career. But it’s hard to commit to a national conference.

Sit front-row with the world’s best

The world’s top experts, on the topics you care about, on-demand.

Engage and empower your team — with a focus on action.

Learn at your own pace, when (and where) learning works for you.

Secure learning portal

Get password-protected access to our virtual library of K-12 professional-learning mini-courses, including self-paced video lessons, downloadable workbooks and bonus content.

On-demand video instruction

Each video-based mini-course includes (5) self-paced modules: an introduction, (3) key lessons, with key outcomes and a wrap-up session.

Practical learning workbooks

Self-reflection is key to learning. That's why each video-based mini-course also includes a downloadable practical learning workbook for deeper exploration.

Certificates of completion

Educators (and schools) want proof of time well spent. Each video-based mini-course includes an available Certificate of Completion awarded and available at its conclusion.

Priority access to “live” cohorts and other content

As a LaunchPad subscriber, your team will also receive advanced "priority" access to special live events with RocketPD thought leaders, including live cohorts.

Conferences are great for networking. But keynotes don’t boost student outcomes.

Give your team the practical support it needs to thrive.

  • Model proven strategies & frameworks
  • Get job-embedded resources for exploration & self-reflection
  • Do it all on a schedule that works (for everyone)

Good PD is hard to find — and harder to afford

There is a reason less than 29% of K-12 educators are satisfied with the PD they get at school.

There are a lot of options out there. It’s hard to know what’s going to work. For the less than the cost of a conference registration, LaunchPad helps you:

  • Vet future experts & presenters for you and/or your teams
  • Address professional challenges with proven frameworks
  • Catch new teachers & staff up on strategic areas of focus
  • Give team members more “voice & choice” with professional learning

What is RocketPD LaunchPad?

Created by RocketPD (available starting in July 2023), LaunchPad is an exclusive on-demand video library of “mini-courses,” taught by nationally recognized educators and best-selling authors on topics of strategic importance to the nation’s K-12 schools. Topics include: family engagement, school culture, teacher evaluation, blended learning, staff retention and adult well-being, school communication, transformational leadership, how to close learning gaps with a focus on reading and more, with new content coming soon!

What do I get when I sign up for RocketPD LaunchPad?

Featuring annual subscription options for individual educators and full school site and district-based teams, LaunchPad provides immediate password-protected and on-demand access to a virtual library of on-demand professional learnings. Each LaunchPad mini-course features three key lessons and three key outcomes. Plus, an accompanying practical learning workbook to help you and/or your school team(s) practice and implement key concepts. Every RocketPD LaunchPad subscriber also receives priority access to RocketPD’s lineup of live virtual learning cohorts, held each spring and fall, as a way to dive deeper on the topics they care about, with the educators and leaders they respect and trust.

Why should I sign myself (or my school team) up for RocketPD LaunchPad?

Two reasons: (1) Finding quality professional development is hard. With LaunchPad, you and/your school team(s) get access to 20+ hours of professional development created by nationally recognized experts and leaders in the field. Each RocketPD video mini-course features a minimum of three key lessons, with three key outcomes. Plus, an accompanying practical learning workbook for drill and practice. Our blended approach ensures that every member of the RocketPD community not only has the opportunity to learn alongside the best names in K-12 education, on the topics that matter to them, but that they have adequate time to reflect on that content and think about how to apply critical concepts into their everyday practice.

(2) Because our LaunchPad courses have a relatively small footprint — just 60 minutes in length, in most cases — you and/your your team(s) can engage with the content without taking a lot of time out of their already busy schedules. LaunchPad represents a great way for school leaders to vet the quality of their professional development content before making a larger investment in one particular thought leader or professional learning program or discipline. Find out what works for your team, then decide how to allocate finite time and resources to the topics they care about and require more support with. It’s a win-win.

What is the cost of RocketPD LaunchPad?

RocketPD LaunchPad was designed to give educators on-demand access to a range of strategically important topics, without adding more work to their already crowded plates. The goal was to build a resource that provides immediate practical value, while being easily accessible to individuals and/or school teams. Individual pricing starts at $195 per year. School site and/or district pricing starts at $1,250 per school per year with discounts up to 50% for multiple schools. Learn more.

How often will new content be added to RocketPD LaunchPad?

Scheduled to launch in July 2023, LaunchPad will feature seven video-based “mini-courses” in 2023, with new courses and content scheduled to be added to the platform every quarter.

What’s not included in RocketPD LaunchPad?

Your initial RocketPD subscription features immediate on-demand access to a curated selection of video-based “mini-courses” and accompanying practical learning workbooks as downloadable PDFs. Access to live cohorts is not currently available through the LaunchPad platform. All platform subscribers receive priority access to RocketPD’s full slate of live spring and fall learning cohorts. Engage with the mini-courses in LaunchPad. If you like them, consider signing up for a spring or fall cohort to learn more and dive deeper on the topic, or topics, of your choice.

Can I use grants and/or federal dollars to pay for RocketPD LaunchPad?

Absolutely. We’ve had educators use a variety of federal, state and local funds and grants to procure our services for their teams. Title II and ESSER funds were the two most-used resources in the 2022-2023 school year. Payment plans are also available for educators on a case-by-case basis.
