This partnership allows graduate credit for approved professional development classes
at a reduce tuition. Presently, there are 52 public schools with approximately 4,00
classroom tachers that have signed the partnership agreement with the University. This
partnership agreement permits only this University to provide approved professional
development graduate credit class. Most classroom teachers indicated they would prefer
to pursue a master’s degree in education rather than just accumulate graduate hours.
In some states, classroom teachers must accumulate additional professional
development or graduate hours for renewal of their teaching certificate and have
eliminated the Master’s degree as a requirement for continuing certification. In addition,
classroom teachers must accumulate graduate hours or complete the master’s degree for
advancement on the school district’s salary schedule. This program addresses the issues
of teacher shortages and burnout by the improved support that is built into the progrm. It
also adddresses the other issues of ensuring program quality while reducing costs through
