For Cooperating Teachers

  • Do you have a motivated student with a special interest in your subject area?
  • Do you have an idea for engaging, credit-bearing work?
  • Do you have a little extra time to help mentor a student as he or she explores a topic of interest for credit?

    If so, the ELO program needs you! Certified teachers in all disciplines are needed to help Manchester high school students succeed in their ELO goals. 

    What are Cooperating Teachers expected to do?

    • Meet with the ELO Coordinator and student to discuss student's ELO goals.
    • Prepare an ELO Project Outline, identifying competencies, formative and summative assessments, and project expectations and timeline.
    • Provide ongoing support and guidance as needed to student throughout the process
    • Engage in regular dialogue with ELO Coordinator to discuss student progress and communicate any concerns.
    • Participate in assessment of the student work and attend if possible, the final presentation.
