The Peer Assistance and Review (PAR) Program is a resource to assist teachers in growing professionally. Xenia Community Schools has developed two models for the PAR Program which assists teachers in various areas of professional learning. The two models are the PAR One-on-One and the PAR Group. Each model is available to all teachers employed by Xenia Community Schools and can be customized to fit individual needs.
The PAR One-on-One consists of one Consultant and one Client. There is a pool of Consultants that have chosen to assist another teacher in lesson planning, teaching strategies, formative instructional practices, assessment documentation, and much more. The Consultant and Client meet throughout the school year to set goals and create a plan that will assist the Client in completing the goals.
The Par Group consists of one or more Group Facilitators who plan and present professional learning to other teachers. The facilitators may plan a Book Study, Make-and-Take, Work Session, or any other way that effectively enhances professional learning.
