A Grassroots Collaborative Approach to Professional Development. The South Central Ohio Regional Training Center.
Sherman-Day, Marti; And Others
The South Central Ohio Regional Training Center (SCRTC) is one of the Centers established in response to a directive from the Ohio State Department of Education to: (1) provide teacher-centered professional development experiences that build on the values of collegiality; (2) strengthen teacher leadership in educational improvement and change; (3) provide opportunities for professional development of teachers in new instructional strategies and instructional organization; (4) assist improved assessment practices; and (5) utilize the integration of new technologies and telecommunications. The role of the SCRTC is to provide funds, resources, support, training, professional expertise, and guidance to assist individual sites to begin the process of identifying appropriate systemic change for each unit (individuals, group, building, district). The SCRTC works toward educational reform by assisting with the formation of model sites. Participants at each selected model site (teachers, parents, administrators, etc.) will participate in initial professional development which will assist in defining and working within new roles, planning and decision making, possible alternatives to present delivery systems, and evaluation of the process. Selected sites, which have had their proposals approved, will design a restructuring plan to be implemented during 1993-1994. The restructuring plan will address school governance, teaching/learning delivery processes, school organization structure, and alternative forms of assessment. (IAH)
