Minnesota State Mankato P-20 Professional Development School Partnership: The Cornerstones of 25 Years of Success
Zierdt, Ginger L.; Dahlman, Anne; Rosendale, April; Kennedy, Pam
School-University Partnerships, v5 n2 p19-23 Fall 2012
Minnesota State Mankato's partnership with eight Professional Development School districts, encompassing fifty-four P-12 sites, and post-secondary programs involved in educator preparation including Elementary, Secondary, Special Education, Leadership, School Counseling, and Arts & Sciences content, was one of five PDS partnerships recognized by the National Association for Professional Development Schools for "Exemplary PDS Achievement" in 2012. The mission of this multi-district, long-standing partnership is to interconnect, sustain, and enrich learning communities of students, staff, faculty, and citizens from the university and P-12 schools who foster human development, professional growth, and optimal learning opportunities through research, reflection, and practice. This article highlights four special components of our PDS network, which we consider some of the most essential contributors to or examples of our successful quarter century of PDS partnership.
