CoSN Launches New Peer-to-Peer Resource for District Leaders

CoSN (the Consortium for School Networking) today announced the development of its Peer Review service, a program that leverages CoSN’s national Framework for School System Technology Success.

District leaders who participate in the program will work with an experienced team of education technology professionals, which will visit a school system to identify technology strengths and weaknesses.

The Peer Review process will include the following phases:

  • Advanced Preparation. The CoSN team leader will work with a district representative to collect information, schedule interviews, set up meeting facilities and address preliminary questions
  • Site Visit: Fieldwork. A Peer Review Team will visit a district to assess the school system’s operations.
  • Site Visit: Days One and Two. The Peer Review Team will spend the first meeting confirming priorities with the lead sponsor, followed by interviews with key district leaders.
  • Day Three. The Peer Review Team will provide an assessment of its findings to the district senior leader
  • Post Consultancy Report. A full written report summarizing observations and detailing the team assessment evaluation will be submitted to the participating district within two weeks.
