Professional Development & School-Community Partnerships

The William Paterson University Professional Development School Network is a partnership that shares research, resources, and innovative practices to optimize learning for all.

This mission statement embodies the commitment both the university and school partners have to the learning of both the K-12 students and the pre-service candidates as well as the faculty, staff and administrators in each of our institutions.  It also speaks to the striving for excellence inherent in conducting and utilizing research and implementing and modeling innovative practice.  Finally, the mission statement reflects the willingness of all members to share available resources to benefit all parties.
