National Network for Educational Renewal: Partner School Directory.
Washington Univ., Seattle. Center for Educational Renewal.
The National Network for Educational Renewal (NNER) has established partner schools in 13 states as part of the Professional Development School (PDS) approach simultaneously to renew schools and teacher education through cooperative programs between institutions of higher education and local school districts. Joint responsibility, on the part of participating higher education institutions and school districts for funding and governance of partner schools as well as collaborative planning of clinical experiences, is the hallmark of these schools. Although there are differences in the partner schools at different locations, they are all committed to the 19 Goodlad postulates, they share common beliefs and values which influence their approach to fulfilling the partner school mission, and they have agreed to 11 expectations which will guide their efforts. This directory was developed as a result of a 1993 survey of all NNER sites and provides profiles of partner schools affiliated with 15 NNER settings in 13 states. Profiles are organized by state and institution of higher education and include information on the following categories: local school name, grade levels, address, phone, principal, school district, contact information on the university representative, and a brief description of the scope of the mission.
