WKU using $500K grant to partner with high schools

Posted: Updated:

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) - Western Kentucky University plans to use a $500,000 grant to partner with Bowling Green and Franklin-Simpson high schools to create a new clinical experience for teacher preparation model programs.

The Kentucky Council on Postsecondary Education approved the grant last week. Western Kentucky's College of Education and Behavioral Sciences and the Potter College of Arts & Letters will develop a program to transform teacher education in four areas: clinical teacher preparation, curricular enhancements, professional development and stakeholder benefits.

It is 1 of 3 grants approved by the council.

Other clinical preparation sites funded by the council were Eastern Kentucky University, which is in partnership with Corbin Independent Schools; and the University of Louisville, which is partnering with Jefferson County Public Schools.
