Profiles of 66 partnerships that have developed and implemented professional development school (PDS) programs at 301 preK-12 schools are included in this directory. The profiles include information, which was collected during a national survey, on the following program features: school, college, and teachers union partners; level of faculty participation; use of computer technology; sources of funding; program start date; number of schools and their grade levels, collaborative activity, including research; diversity issues; and program activities for preservice, beginning, and inservice teachers. Each profile includes contact information for the overall program and the individual schools. Survey data are summarized and presented in table and graphical formats. Findings from the survey reported in this directory, when compared to findings from an earlier survey, indicate a dramatic increase in the number of PDSs nationwide. The appendices include the survey instrument, a bibliography featuring literature about the profiled schools and partnerships, and information on the activities and products of the Clinical Schools Clearinghouse, which produced the directory.
