School Partners

School Partners

SUNY Cortland’s PDS Consortium currently includes partnerships with more than 20 regional schools and child care centers. Each school and child care center assigns teachers or child care providers to serve as mentors to our student interns. We believe that the one-to-one mentoring that our partners provide our student interns assists them to become strong future teachers.

Each participating school or child care center agrees to and signs a semester-long Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to ensure that all partners understand the roles and responsibilities associated with being part of the partnership. Click here to view a sample MOU.
