Professional Development

We offer professional development in the areas of:

  • literacy instruction/ Next Generation Learning Standards
  • K- 12 programs
  • English as a New Language and Spanish literacy instructional programs
  • content area instruction/ Next Generation Learning Standards
  • accountability and school improvement/ESSA
  • compliance: program models and organization
  • special education

In addition, we collaborate with education and advocacy organizations serving New York City teachers, administrators, students and families, counselors, social workers and psychologists working with ELLs/MLLs. Our professional development activities provide institutes and seminars that are augmented by on-site school support and guided by our constituents across the city.

 We invite schools to participate in our Collaborative Accountability Initiative, a partnership that focuses on data analysis with the goals of planning and developing quality, and equitable programs for ELLs/MLLs, and offers professional development opportunities for teachers. 

Hands-on Involvement in Schools

Fordham GSE and The Center for Educational Partnerships are committed to hands-on involvement in schools and to maintaining the unique character of our local communities.

Toward that end we have offices in the Bronx and Manhattan, which bring our expertise close to our school partners. Each office provides meeting space and offers specialized resources.
