How Inservice Programs Can Improve Staff Performance.
Perdue, David A.
The public school system of Houston County, Georgia, has instituted an inservice staff development program planned by the teachers themselves. Following assessment of the needs of students and parents as well as teachers, the planning group designed a program offering college credit to participants. Houston County teachers now find it possible to work toward certification and accreditation, and can accumulate up to half the college credit required for a master's degree, all while remaining on the job. The program has led to higher student test scores, improvement in basic skills instruction, and a staff with increasing numbers of graduate degrees and no uncertified teachers. (Author/PGD)
