Roblee Foundation Enhances Studio Schools
Our new Studio Schools program for undergraduates got a boost from the Roblee Foundation with their $15,000 gift to strengthen our 32 Studio School partnerships throughout the region.
In this innovative capstone program, our teacher candidates join professionals in the classroom as active participants in a differentiated staffing team. In this system, our teacher candidates team up with school staff expertise in providing P-12 students in-depth and targeted support and intervention. The teams plan and provide focused learning experiences that can include small group settings, whole class lessons, or enrichment and support lessons. The candidates become part of the fabric of the school and school district and as a result, become fully able to demonstrate their impact on student learning.
The Studio Schools program began in Fall 2012 working with 13 schools and quickly expanded to 32 partner schools last fall. Approximately 250 teacher candidates now work as part of school staffing teams to help P-12 students improve their academic achievement where it is most needed. The generous gift from Roblee will support and strengthen the Studio Schools by developing a governance board, as well as by delivering relevant professional development to the clinical teachers, clinical educators and teacher candidates in the areas of video- taping for deeper learning and “Inquire Into My Practice” techniques.
The Joseph H. and Florence A. Roblee Foundation is dedicated to promoting change by supporting organizations that address significant social issues, improve quality of life, and help individuals fulfill their potential.
