Collaborative Peer Review (CPR) provides secondary schools the chance to work on continuous improvement in teaching and learning, through classroom observation, reflection, and dialogue led by youth-adult teams. Partner schools agree to visit each other for classroom walkthroughs focused on the Fours Rs (rigor, relevance, relationship, and shared responsibility). Teams then synthesize observation findings with other data sources.  Each school team shares its key evidence—both strengths and questions—with students, faculty, and community members in a series of structured dialogues.  Initiated by three Vermont schools in 2014-15 (Leland & Gray, Otter Valley, and Mill River Union), the program is available through UP for Learning as a project-based course for adult graduate credit or youth dual enrollment credit.
