What is the time commitment?
What is the time commitment for the TLI? TLI members will participate in a one-year commitment running from June 2012-June 2013 (tentative) and should expect to dedicate a mixture of the following:
- Two summer sessions;
- Release time from the classroom with dedicated substitutes;
- After-school networking sessions;
- Ongoing online networking; and
- A few weekends throughout the school year. (Religious preferences will be accommodated.)
Each component of the curriculum is essential to the TLI; absences from sessions are not excused unless for emergency or religious reasons.
