Prerequisite: This course requires the permission of the instructor(s) because potential participants will need to fill out a background check for each school or district which they will be visiting in advance of J-term. Also, students need to be made aware that the course does not follow a standard 3 hours per day model, but will need to begin many days at 7:00am and extend past 3 hours.
