Professional Development Schools combine the best teaching practices with the best of professional development to enhance learning opportunities for children. In essence, PDS is a collaboration of public schools and the university partnering in an effort to “grow” together. The focus of the PDS partnership is improved student performance through research-based teaching and learning.
Currently, Fairmont State University works collaboratively with 36 schools in five counties. The counties and schools are as follows:
Cheat Lake Elementary
