Differentiated Career Opportunities for Teachers. Fastback 287.
Jandura, Ronald M.; Burke, Peter J.
This document describes a program in District 742 Community Schools in St. Cloud, Minnesota, called Differentiated Career Opportunities for Teachers. This multifaceted program empowers selected teachers with the authority to make decisions and plan programs for their district and individual schools and, at the same time, to renew their professional lives. Through a system of 3-year temporary assignments with additional compensation and protection of their seniority, classroom teachers take on a variety of leadership roles. The program has been in operation since 1984 and appears to be working well. (JD)
