Co-Teaching Online Training

Co-Teaching is defined as two educators who "Co-Plan, Co-Instruct, and Co-Assess a group of students with diverse needs in the same general education classroom." Information on the new cooperating teacher requirements (16 KAR 5:040) can be found at: http://www.epsb.ky.gov/mod/page/view.php?id=14

These trainings are required of all cooperating teachers and must be completed to be eligible to host a teacher candidate. Co-Teaching Information is located under Field Placement and Student Teaching (under Division of Educator Preparation, Assessment and Internship) on the EPSB site.
