Affiliated Programs

The Professional Development System School-University Partnership in the Watson College of Education is a complex system of collegial relationships forged among twelve P-12 school district partners and university faculty, staff, and students. These longstanding relationships serve as the foundation of our academic programs, providing WCE students diverse applied learning experiences, site-based seminars, and a coaching and supervision model that pairs interns with trained partnership teachers. The growth of our partnership has led to the development of a tiered approach to participation, which includes the collaborative efforts of various WCE and University programs and centers. District partners and individual schools have the flexibility to move in and out of these tiers dependent upon their readiness to partner in (Tier 1) professional development, (Tier 2) applied learning, and (Tier 3) research/advanced support.  The affiliated programs listed below provide support for faculty and public school partners in each of the three tiers.
