What is PAR?
The Peer Assistance and Review Program (PAR) was negotiated and established in the Fremont Unified School District to give teachers assistance and support in order to continuously improve their professional practice.
The PAR program serves teachers who request assistance as well as teachers who are referred to the program. All aspects of the program are confidential.
The governing body for the PAR program is the Joint Panel, which consists of five members: three certificated classroom teachers selected by the Association and two administrators selected by the District. The Panel administers and implements the PAR Program, which includes managing the budgetary dollars available to the program from the State of California. The Panel selects Consulting Teacher(s) who work directly with the referred and voluntary teachers. The PAR Panel has also, depending on state funding, awarded professional development grants to teachers in the school district.
Further details of the PAR program can be found in the FUSD/FUDTA Contract, Article 31.
