The concept of a peer assistance and review (PAR) program has been around for the past three decades.
The first PAR program, called the Toledo Plan, started in the Toledo (OH) Public Schools in 1981. After the success of the program, other districts across the country started modeling the induction, professional development, and career path options offered in this program. This paper highlights the implementation of APR in three school districts, each of which accepted the four main components of the Toledo Plan program, but had the option to include details that differed from the basic structure.
