Tech Valley High School in conjunction with the The Center for 21st Century Teaching and Learning (CTL) will offer dozens of professional development tours of Tech Valley High School during the 2012-13 school year.
The tours of TVHS - the only school of its kind in New York State - are designed for those interested in learning more about the school.
CTL, which oversees the sharing of TVHS’s knowledge with educators and business leaders, is offering a 90-minute and a three-hour tour of the school.
The 90-minute snapshot tours feature information on the principles and practices of the school and provides tourists an opportunity to observe a classroom in action. A question-and-answer session with faculty, students and administrators follows.
