About the Network

Network About Med

The Winthrop University-School Partnership Network began in 2009. As a collaboration between nine districts, multiple schools, hundreds of teachers, and three university colleges, the Partnership Network is invested in the simultaneous renewal of its stakeholders.

Partnership Network Goals

  1. Improve P-12 student learning.
  2. Improve professional learning for district and university faculty and teacher candidates.
  3. Strengthen pre-service teacher education.
  4. Increase support for new teachers and leaders.

Governed by the Partnership Advisory Council, the Partnership Network consists of four involvement levels: Professional Development Schools, Partner Schools, Content Area Assemblies, and Satellite Schools. To learn more about each level, visit Joining the Network.
