Teacher Center

Collegial Circle

The Collegial Circle Program provides teachers with structured time for reflection on professional issues. Teachers take responsibility for identifying and satisfying their needds for professional growth.   A formal support process is established for sharing expertise and for problem solving through group processes.   Inservice credit can be earned by active participation and attendance.

Teachers may form groups of four to eight members by agreed upon common interests and needs.  Each group must submit an application to the Teacher Center Policy Board for approval.

Groups must plan to meet for fifteen hours in sessions ranging from 1 to 2 1/2 hours each. A facilitator must be selected who will be responsible for maintaining focus, record keeping, and notifying group members of meeting dates.  The role of facilitator may be rotated however, a log of all sessions will be kept by the facilitator including meeting dates, times, attendance and summaries of topics discussed.  An evaluation for each participant forwarded to the Teacher Center Policy Board is required upon the completion of the last session.

Resources such as books, videos, clerical support and speakers can be funded by the Teacher Center. Approximate costs must be included in the application.
