Self-Paced, Online Moodle Course
Rural Schools: The Supervising Teacher
Open now and complete by May 15, 2023
The self-paced online course provides a foundation for supervising teachers in rural Montana Schools. This course may also be useful to principals in rural districts that do not hire a superintendent and for newly elected or contract county superintendents. By exploring topics often associated with the principalship or superintendency of a school district, new and experienced rural school administrators will become familiar with topics and resources specific to Montana. The overarching goal of this course is to provide rural school administrators with a toolkit for success in their unique educational community. Often this will require changes at the district level which the rural school administrator must facilitate. By the end of the course, the course participant will have developed a Supervising Teacher Procedure Manual that can be handed off to future supervising teachers in the district.
This is a self-paced course. As such, course participants must be comfortable working independently and self-motivated to complete all work within the flexible time frame. Participants may register for the course and start as soon as payment is received. No new registrations will be accepted after January 15, 2023. Participants must complete the course by May 15, 2023.
