"Show Me" Your K-12 Partnerships

Strong partnerships between school districts and teacher preparation programs are at the heart of the reform efforts in Missouri. Even before receiving technical assistance (TA) from the CEEDAR Center, institutions of higher education (IHEs) such as Avila University, Missouri Baptist University, University of Central Missouri, and University of Missouri-St. Louis were working to revamp their teacher preparation programs. Aligning their efforts with CEEDAR instigated further collaboration and positive change. The initial focus of the reform efforts in Missouri began with aligning district resources to enhance PK-12 school partnerships with local IHEs. Professionals have been working closely with CEEDAR to make progress with not only their school and community partnerships, but also with state reform efforts.
