Teachers at North Elementary School in Morgantown recently attended professional development courses at Fairmont State University, including a grant writing course in which teachers researched and wrote grants for projects at their schools.
The West Virginia Department of Education and the Arts has awarded a $107,000 grant to the Fairmont State Foundation, Inc., on behalf of Fairmont State University’s Professional Development School Partnership.
The Fairmont State University/PDS Partnership was represented at the 12th annual National Association for Professional Development Schools (NAPDS) Conference in New Orleans in March 2011. The conference featured educators from across the P-20 educational continuum in all 50 states. Presenters shared the strategies they have designed and implemented and offered practical, site-based suggestions to attendees.
