PDS Agreement Signing Ceremony – June 4

Friday, May 01, 2015

The Watson College of Education will celebrate the renewal of Professional Development System (PDS) partnerships with representatives from 12 partnership school districts and two charter schools on June 4. The agreements will be renewed for a period of three years, through 2018.

WCE’s PDS was created in 1993 to enhance teacher preparation by partnering with in-service teachers to provide internship opportunities for students. The mission has grown to include school-university collaboration and ongoing professional development to enhance the quality of teaching and school leadership in the region. Today, the program partners with 12 districts, 146 schools and more than 2,200 teachers in southeastern North Carolina.

The agreement signing ceremony and reception will be held in North Carolina Teachers Legacy Hall located on the main floor of the Education Building at 1 p.m. on June 4. The celebration is open to partnership school district representatives, faculty, staff and friends of UNCW and the Watson College.
