Peer Assistance & Review (PAR)
The Columbus City Schools are continuously striving to provide the highest possible quality of education. For students to succeed in learning, teachers must succeed in teaching. The PAR Program has been designed to improve the quality of instruction by assuring that all teachers experience professional success.
Since 1985, the program has been a continuous joint effort between the Columbus Education Association (CEA) and administration, with the goal of providing assistance and support to teachers entering the profession (intern) and to improve the performance of experienced teachers who are encountering some difficulties (intervention).
