An unusual on-campus effort to train teachers is at work at High Tech High, a charter school in Point Loma. The school is offering a graduate program for educators at the same site where elementary, middle and high school students mingle from High Tech High, High Tech Middle and Explorer Elementary, three jointly-operated charter schools.
High Tech High School has already opened a Graduate School of Education, and its teacher leadership program kicked off in fall 2007. This summer, the school is expanding its offerings to include a school leadership program aimed at aspiring administrators, both within the High Tech High schools and from across the state.
Education Week wrote about the program this fall, but it’s gotten less attention locally, said Jed Wallace, the school’s chief operating officer. The school is holding an information session Thursday about the program.
