Citrus County Professional Orientation Program, 1992-93.
Citrus County Board of Public Instruction, Inverness, FL.
The Citrus County (Florida) Professional Orientation Program is designed to increase student learning by providing a set of supervised support services for teachers in the first year(s) of teaching that will assist them in their continuing professional development. The program provides for the development, demonstration, and documentation of teaching competence based on a system which provides technical and psychological support to teachers seeking Florida certification. Two program options exist: a 90-day program and a 196-day program. The 196-day program is required for teachers with a Bachelors degree but without a regular certificate and having less than 1 full school year or the equivalent of successful teaching experience or who have failed to demonstrate desired performance criteria. The 90-day program is designed for those teachers who have documented at least 1 full year of successful teaching experience. This report discusses: responsibilities of the members of the support team assigned to each teacher in the 196-day program, support team training, data collection instruments used, production of the Professional Development Plan, and development of a portfolio. Sample copies of checklists and recommendation forms are included. Appendixes define relevant terms and list recommended support services and training activities. (JDD)
