To create a recruitment, training, and retention program for avocational teachers in the supplementary school.
This grant resulted in the creation of a two year professional development program for avocational and substitute school teachers who had no prior training. The program allowed the teachers to gain basic skills in classroom management, reflective practice, and lesson plan writing. Training sessions included a two-day summer seminar and several other sessions throughout the school year.
