Professional Development Schools
The Maryland Professional Development School Network connects Maryland colleges and universities and their local school system partners in their efforts to implement the Redesign of Teacher Education in Maryland. The Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE) sponsors regional network meetings of stakeholders in these partnerships - college/university liaisons, school system PDS representatives, school principals and site coordinators, and preservice mentor teachers. These meetings are designed to engage the educational community in sharing data, experiences, and lessons learned as a result of their ongoing work.
