Leveraging Online Learning to Support Teacher Competency Development

Like many districts, Cajon Valley Union School District in California has faced challenges providing differentiated professional learning for teachers and staff. With limited opportunities for in-person learning, exacerbated by the increasing difficulty of finding substitutes, they decided to leverage online learning to support district employees. Built on the Alludo platform, they developed Cajon 365, a professional learning platform providing educators with anytime, anywhere access. 

Through Cajon 365, which includes customized learning content, employees can demonstrate competencies and earn digital badges, points, and rewards. Educators can choose the areas to focus on to meet their classroom, personal, and professional goals. With Cajon 365, district leadership can add new content any time based on current objectives and goals. The platform is also used for onboarding new employees, ensuring they don’t miss out on important content. 

Cajon 365 provides visibility on learning progress across schools and the district and is used as a metric in the Cajon Valley Local Control and Accountability Plan. In two years, Cajon 365 supported 1548 learners with over 10,000 hours of professional learning.
