The Salisbury University Regional Professional Development Schools (RPDS) Council is a collective body that includes University and school personnel. Collaboratively this group meets regularly to discuss candidate performance during field experiences and clinical practice. The Council provides PDS stakeholders a voice in decisions related to the professional preparation of pre-service teacher candidates. RPDS input is used to improve candidate preparation and ultimately P-12 student achievement. Salisbury University currently partners with seven school districts and thirty-three public schools in Maryland.
