P-16 Initiative

Mid-Hudson P-16 Initiative

The overall goal of the statewide Regional P-16 Partnerships Pilot Project is:  "Every P-12 student has certified, highly qualified and effective teachers who promote student learning."

The Mid-Hudson Region P-16 Partnership grew out of a New York State Department of Education initiative to encourage regional partnerships to engage issues of teacher quality and preparation.  The School of Education at New Paltz (SUNY), in conjunction with the Mid-Hudson School Study Council, has initiated meetings inviting regional educators to round-table discussions.

The Partnership is discussing issues including:

  • alignment
  • diversity
  • teaching areas of high need

Beginning in 2009, the Partnership has sponsored a day-long conference for area high school students exploring teaching careers called It's a Class Act:  Future Teachers Information Day (see link below).
