School Partnership Cohorts and Teacher Residency Program
We are a partnership-based program. Central Valley Partnerships for Exemplary Teachers offers a collaborative approach to teacher education.
Partnerships are daytime programs that use district facilities for university coursework and field experiences. This allows the candidates and university faculty to become part of the culture of the school and the cycle of the school year. Teacher candidates move through the program as a cohort.
We have Multiple Subject partnership cohorts in the following districts:
- Central (ECE)
- Fresno (Teacher Residency Program)
Not all partnerships are available for a Spring start.
