Rex School/Community Council

The Rex School Community Council began as the Partnership Network Management Team in 2009. The Council consists of university, school district, and community leaders charged with providing support from a global perspective for the multiple and varied Rex Institute programs and initiatives including the Winthrop University-School Partnership Network. With a focus on meeting the needs of PK-12 students, teachers, administrators, university faculty, and teacher candidates, the Council organizes professional learning opportunities, collaborates on projects and grants, examines budget and assessment data, and ensures program accountability.
