The Kanawha County (West Virginia) Student Teaching Center, a cooperative program (of six institutes of higher education, the Kanawha County School System, and the West Virginia State Department of Education) for coordinating student teaching and inservice teacher education programs in Kanawha County elementary and secondary schools, is described in this report. Opening sections capsule the structure, innovations, background, and outstanding features of the Center. The major portion of the report presents guidelines for the Center: its primary functions (including preparing and selecting cooperating teachers and stimulating and disseminating innovations); the composition and role of the Center's coordinating committee; the individual roles and responsibilities of the Center coordinator, the cooperating teacher, the student teacher (with expected competencies), and the principal of the cooperating school; and the group roles of the County's schools, the participating teacher education institutions, and the State Department of Education. Sections on standards and requirements for cooperating teachers, innovative programs of three of the participating teacher education institutions, and projections for the future of the Center conclude the report.
