 PSEA, PDE INVOLVED IN COOPERATIVE TRAINING EFFORT
 TO IMPLEMENT STATE'S NEW EDUCATION DELIVERY SYSTEM
 HARRISBURG, Pa., March 20 /PRNewswire/ -- The Pennsylvania State Education Association (PSEA) and the Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) have agreed to a plan to involve 30 PSEA members in "outcome/assessment training" as part of the state's new education delivery system, Annette Palutis, PSEA president, announced today.
 The training will be funded by the National Education Association (NEA), PSEA's national affiliate.
 "PSEA is now accepting applications from our members for the training part of the program. Those persons selected will eventually form a cadre of consultants who will work with local staff and programs statewide," Palutis said.
 The 30 PSEA members will be provided an opportunity to:
 -- develop a training program in outcomes writing and assessment techniques;
 -- identify and work with a group of teachers in their home district;
 -- test the training materials; and
 -- serve as a consultant to school districts phasing into the new curriculum requirements.
 The program of training is to be consistent with the requirements of the proposed revision to the testing and curriculum regulations of the State Board of Education as contained in Chapters 3, 5 and 6.
 Training for the cadre will take place during weekends in the spring and fall, and two summer sessions. A cadre member will be expected to serve both in the home district and surrounding districts for up to 10 days per year for three years. Successful applicants must have approval from their district superintendents.
 Applications are to be reviewed after the April 3 deadline, Palutis noted.
 "This venture between NEA, PSEA and the Department of Education signals a cooperative effort to make the new curriculum standards and regulations successful. The fact that teachers, the professionals in the classroom, are involved guarantees that our concerns and expertise will be considered in the early stages of change," Palutis said.
