Many schools have particular questions or dilemmas they would like to explore in greater depth during a visit to Parker. The Sizer Teachers Center assists these visitors by helping them to frame their question(s) for a visit and offering a program designed to meet their specific needs (including observations, meetings with teachers, students, and administrators, and, when appropriate, focused training for a department or school staff). Dates for custom visits are arranged on an individual basis.

Past topics for custom visits include curriculum and organization, alternative assessments/"gateways," and creation of new small schools (both district-based and charter).

Cost for Custom Visits is $150 per participant for the day. This fee includes materials, breakfast and lunch. On occasion we are able to offer discounts for large groups. We require a minimum of one month's notice to arrange a custom visit.

Please contact cmeaney@theparkerschool.org for more information about arranging a custom visit.
