University offering 12-month intervention specialist program

Tuition-free program designed to encourage collaboration and professional networking | June 20, 2005

Beginning this fall, the department of education is offering a 12-month program for training licensed educators to become mild/moderate intervention specialists for Ohio. The program is made possible through a grant from Ohio Department of Education.

Under this program, 25 students complete a 12-month, eight-course tuition-free program as a cohort group. The courses are specially designed to encourage collaboration and professional networking.

Participants attend five weekend sessions during the fall 2005 semester and another five weekend sessions during the spring 2006 semester. The final phase of this program consists of 12 credit hours taken in the summer of 2006.

Xavier is partnering with the Ohio Department of Education and local school districts to provide training programs for already licensed educators who are on temporary licenses teaching as interventions specialists or already licensed teachers who are willing to complete a licensure program and assume an assignment as an intervention specialist in an Ohio school district. The program is not intended for those teaching under conditional and alternative licenses. Those seeking admission into this program must be recommended by their school principal or superintendent.
