    Physical Education Teacher Itinerant Program (PETIP)

    The application process for the Physical Education Teacher Itinerant Program (PETIP) will be open October 3, 2016 through February 3, 2017.  PETIP will fund a credentialed physical education itinerant teacher, one day per week at your school for two years to provide embedded professional development for designated teachers (6-8) during physical education instruction.  This model is designed to provide teachers with pedagogy and content knowledge needed to assist them in meeting the state mandated 200 minutes of physical education every 10 school days. Participating teachers are expected to gradually assume the role of providing physical education instruction with the assistance of the itinerant teacher as a coach, no later than the first semester of year 2.  In addition, schools will receive appropriate physical education equipment. However, it will be the responsibility of the site administrator to allot funds to replenish equipment as needed. Submit your application early. The selection of schools for the 2017-18 school year will be made at the end of February 2017.  The application will be available September 9,2016. Please contact Dr. Janice Collins, Administrator, Physical Education Programs for more information.
