Partnership with College of Notre Dame
Belvedere is working collaboratively with the College of Notre Dame of Maryland to implement a Professional Development School partnership. The partnership is based on the Maryland PDS framework that provides the guidelines and standards for implementation. The focus of our PDS partnership is improved student academic performance through research based teaching and learning. The partnership provides additional opportunities for our teachers to engage in focused professional development, and enhanced opportunities of our students to gain additional learning opportunities. The Professional Development School collaboratively supports the academic and clinical preparation of CND interns as they complete their preparation as certified teachers. There will be on-going efforts to inform and engage parents and community stakeholders in the various activities that foster and support the partnership. If you have questions or would like to provide support for the PDS, please contact the school principal.
