- two or more people responsible for the design, implementation and evaluation of the plan, no longer a one person job (see the job skill rubric from COSN linked below).
- a professional development plan that is an integral part of the district Professional Development Plan (PDP) and allows for the participation and feedback by stakeholders in the design, implementation, and evaluation of the plan,
