30C University: Philosophy and Purpose
over 2 years ago
30-CU is a district internal university based on the premise that continued professional development increases teacher performance and student achievement.This university is internal so that it is efficient: staff can find opportunities to both learn and teach relevant materials within close proximity to their work with their district peers as part of their professional learning community. This embedded district professional development lends it self to sustainable growth and student success.
30-CU was created through a joint task force of equal members of Troy 30C School District administration and Troy Education Association members. The motivation to create 30-CU was a mutual desire to have staff continue their education for the improvement of student success. The purpose for an internal university was to have that education directly impact Troy30-C students by providing university and district courses aligned with district initiatives using the profound resources of our employees as facilitators, local universities as cohort providers, and district initiatives as content.
30-CU brings together four different kinds of opportunities for the staff:
- District-led board credit courses on district initiatives along with board credit book studies
- Endorsement programming from colleges and universities
- College credit programs and degrees
- Professional development courses for licensure hours
