“We value our relationship and partnership with JMU in many capacities. Our division benefits from hosting JMU student teachers and education practicum students, and the coordination in place also allows us to offer dual enrollment courses in our schools, and in the regional Governor’s School.”
— Dr. Carol S. Fenn, Division Superintendent, Rockingham County Public Schools
Professional educators throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia also take advantage of professional development opportunities at JMU. In 2009-10, 1,709 Virginia teachers enrolled in courses through JMU’s Office of Outreach and Engagement.
