Professional Development School Network

Since 1989 the College of Education has entered into projects with Kansas school districts to establish mutually beneficial partnerships. Our network includes K-12 districts and schools who host our candidates in rigorous, carefully sequenced field experiences and collaborate as we conduct and disseminate research examining critical questions facing educators today.

College of Education faculty, K-12 teachers and administrators work together toward our goals of providing an exemplary education for public school students of Kansas while making Kansas State University a national leader in teacher preparation.
