How do I best support and mentor teachers in an independent study school environment?
“Grading papers is probably the most tedious part of a teacher’s job. In independent study teachers have to prepare portfolios for the state that require many hours of paperwork.
The only part that counts in independent study attendance credit is evaluated work or work products that were completed by the due dates that are established in the Master Agreement and Lesson Plan. Teachers who don’t grade papers will not lose money for their school, but if you don’t fill out the paper work for independent study programs correctly you could cost your school thousands of dollars a year. “
