Preparing Educators as Leaders

PDS Executive Council

Faculty members from across four of the five academic departments within the KU School of Education are active supporters of the PDS Alliance in various ways including:

  • Serve as faculty liaisons between the KU School of Education and the partner schools
  • Offer academic courses on site for collaborative learning opportunities
  • Work with educators in the districts to produce collaborative research and publications
  • Mentor pre-service students in their professional development experiences

Our KU School of Education faculty members also support the PDS Alliance by serving on the Executive Council.  To ensure transparency for those involved, we encourage you to review the most recent PDS Alliance Executive Council meeting minutes:
