Distinguished Teachers in Residence Program
The Distinguished Teachers in Residence (DTiR) program at Cal State San Marcos evolved out of a mutual desire for local school districts to be directly involved in teacher preparation at the university and the faculty's desire to remain closely connected with schools. The DTiR program has helped create and maintain important linkages between public schools in North San Diego County and Cal State San Marcos.

How does it work?
K-12 school districts who are members of the DTiR program identify teachers in their school districts to serve as faculty on two-year terms at CSUSM. Teachers who join CSUSM School of Education through the program (known as "DTiRs") will remain employees of their respective school districts with full entitlement to all associated benefits. CSUSM will reimburse the employing districts for replacement teaching costs. General duties of DTiRs include: teaching courses appropriate to their area(s) of specialization, supervising student teachers, advising students, participating in college governance and holding committee assignments. Opportunities may be provided to team teach, provide guest lectures in specialized content areas, conduct research and facilitate student teaching seminars. DTiRs are afforded opportunities and encouraged to share their classroom teaching expertise with the widest spectrum of pre-service teachers in a variety of teacher credential program courses. DTiRs are strongly encouraged, but not required, to conduct applied research collaboratively with CSUSM faculty or on their own and incorporate such research activities into their professional growth plans.
As part of the DTiR program, CSUSM will also make available units of assigned time (Partnership Professional Development) per academic year to the tenure-track School of Education faculty to assist participating school districts with special needs within their areas of expertise.
What is the Application and Selection Process?
Each year, eligible districts will be sent application information containing the position announcement, qualifications, application procedures and information meeting flyer. This information will be distributed on or before the first week in December to the designated representative of each participating eligible district for distribution to the schools in their respective districts. The position announcement, application form, information meeting flyer and other pertinent information about the search process will also be posted and available for download below.
CSUSM will identify teachers from participating districts to serve as Distinguished Teachers in Residence in the School of Education and will be chosen from among the permanent teaching faculties of the districts which are parties to the Consortium Agreement. The search committee (to be chosen using criteria established by the University and the superintendents of participating school districts) will include representation from the Consortium Agreement districts and CSUSM.
DTiR Partnership Professional Development (Assigned Time Grants)
A portion of the Distinguished Teachers in Residence (DTiR) Program is committed to Partnership Professional Development (former Assigned Time Grants: ATG). Partnership Professional Development begins as proposals developed cooperatively with School of Education Faculty and participating Consortium districts, which are submitted each year for consideration for Partnership Professional Development (former Assigned Time Grants).
