Participants will be released from the regular school classroom counterpart subject areas (English, mathematics, vocational, social studies as applicable) for participation in the project. Credit for appropriate subjects will be offered upon successful completion of the training.
A major annual and long range objective of this Project is to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of the above instructional programs in the counterpart grade levels at these five senior high schools.
