The MidValley Consortium for Teacher Education is a collaborative effort of four colleges and universities and seven school divisions in the Shenandoah Valley.
Its goals are to:
• develop a cadre of clinical faculty who are exemplary models of effective teaching and strong mentors for their student teachers,
• develop and nurture leadership abilities in clinical faculty, and
• facilitate greater cooperation and communication among consortium members.
A steering committee representing teachers, administrators, and teacher educators meets monthly to plan consortium activities. The Steering Committe Membership Guidelines outline how membership is represented. The steering committee and central office contact persons from the seven member school divisions meet annually to evaluate consortium projects, set policy, and approve the annual budget. Each school division and college or university supports consortium activities through an annual fee.
Consortium members include:
