Periodic reexamination of existing professional development school forms is good practice to ascertain whether goals are being met. Such an assessment was sparked by a request from a superintendent in a 14-year-old professional development school structure at a public college in the Northeast. This assessment revealed that although the originators' goal of creating bridges between the college and public schools was in place, some of the collaborating environments needed strengthening. With an emphasis on three of the nine essentials of a professional development school (as defined by National Association for Professional Development Schools), the shared supervision model evolved as a framework. This article provides an overview of the model's implementation and projections regarding its future development.
