How can I support student learning?

The Educator Preparation Program (EPP) recognizes the value and the necessity of working closely with a variety of stakeholders.  These relationships provide the EPP with information from various entities, representing different perspectives all with the common goal of having a positive impact on student learning.  Through a grant provided through the West Virginia Department of Education, the EPP has established Professional Development Schools (PDS).  This partnership was made between 22 schools in 6 counties.  The West Virginia University at Parkersburg Professional Developments Schools Partnerships are committed to establishing a mutually beneficial collaborative relationship which positively impacts student learning and teacher candidate experiences.  For more information on the PDS (active link to info sheet)
