Professional Development School Network
The William Paterson University Professional Development School Network is a partnership that shares research, resources and innovative practices to optimize learning for all.
This mission statement embodies the commitment both the university and school
partners have to the learning of both the K-12 students and the pre-service candi-
dates as well as the faculty, staff and administrators in each of our institutions. It also
speaks to the striving for excellence inherent in conducting and utilizing research and
implementing and modeling innovative practice. Finally, the mission statement reflects
the willingness of all members to share available resources to benefit all parties.
