The University's Education Program is significantly enhanced through an active partnership of shared decision making with the Siloam Springs Public Schools and the community.
The professional development school partnership provides for the simultaneous renewal of both the programs for the preparation of teachers and the K-12 programs of the school district.
Beginning in their sophomore year, Education students actively participate in local preschools and in the K-12 classrooms of the school district. They provide valuable assistance to preschool and district K-12 programs.
At the same time, experienced teachers in the schools serve as clinical faculty providing important practical experiences and instruction for the Education students.
