Professional Development Schools


Naylor/CCSU Leadership Academy

The Naylor/CCSU Leadership Academy is a preschool through grade 8 learning environment that prepares students, teachers, and professionals-in-training, utilizing current research and best practices, to be leaders in classrooms, schools and communities. Central Connecticut State University has been a partner with the school since 1996, and in 1998 the Professional Development Partnership was formalized. Teacher Candidates at CCSU from all levels of the teacher certification program are involved in virtually all classrooms at the school, university classes meet there, and CCSU students and faculty from the wider university community participate in joint projects and events. Naylor/CCSU Leadership Academy teachers and administrators host and support teacher candidates at the undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral levels, and participate at CCSU in advisory roles and as regular contributors to teacher education courses. For more information about the school and its relationship with CCSU contact Dr. Karen Riem in the Department of Teacher Education.

 

Cromwell Public Schools

CCSU has a unique district partnership with the Cromwell Public Schools. Cromwell Public Schools is a suburban district located just over 10 miles away from CCSU’s campus in New Britain. Comprised of four schools, it serves a diverse student body of 2100 Pre-K through grade 12 students. Over 32 languages are spoken in district, and the district participates in the Open Choice program with Hartford Public Schools. The district has been hosting teacher candidates for nearly a decade. Woodside Intermediate School (grades 3-5) was designated a Professional Development School (PDS) in 2009, and Edna C. Stevens (PreK-2) became an official PDS in 2010. Formalizing partnerships at the middle and high school led to establishing Cromwell as a Professional Development District (PDD) during the 2011- 2012 school year. Teacher Candidates at CCSU from all levels of the teacher certification program are involved in virtually all classrooms at the school, university classes meet there, and CCSU students and faculty from the wider university community participate in joint projects and events. Cromwell teachers and administrators host and support teacher candidates at the undergraduate and graduate level, and participate at CCSU in advisory roles and as regular contributors to teacher education courses. For more information about the school and its relationship with CCSU contact Dr. Sally Drew in the Department of Teacher Education.
