All professional development programs addressed state and national standards.
All project communication to teachers was done by means of e-mail, which encouraged teachers to utilize this Internet source. E-mail alerts were sent to teacher reminding them of the upcoming workshop.

Additional public outreach provided by the Troy University Public Relations Department was a great benefit in communicating all events via both online resources through the University website and in the Wiregrass area newspaper (Dothan Eagle).
