POD = a group of up to 60 students split between two teachers.



Please note that the intent of a POD is for student to "get to know" not just 30 students in their class by 60 students in their POD.  In order to facilitiate this process, POD teachers will at several points throughout the school year "shuffle" students between the two classes which make up a POD.  POD shuffles are intented so students get an opportunity to work with different peers, in different setting thereby getting to know not just 29 of their peers but 59 of their peers by the end of the year.
