The Hopatcong School District has partnered with William Paterson University to institute our Professors in Residence Program. The program, which began in April, provides support to our K-12 faculty to engage in shared inquiry to improve and enhance student learning. Additionally they will assist in consulting with parents and administrators and arranging on-site seminars and workshops.
The benefits of using the Professors in Residence program is that it will provide a stronger sense of professional community, more adults in the classroom and school based professional development.
The program is designed to have each professor spend the equivalent of one day per week at their designate school within the district. They will finish out the remainder of the 2013-2014 school year and return in September for the 2014-2015 year.
