Partnership Professional Development begins as proposals developed cooperatively with School of Education Faculty and participating Consortium districts, which are submitted each year for consideration of Partnership Professional Development (former Assigned Time Grant). 

 Some of the determining factors for selection are based upon:

  • Viability of the project
  • Match between units requested and depth of work proposed
  • Anticipated benefits to the district(s)
