NETwork of Sustained, Collaborative, Ongoing Preparation for Educators (NETSCOPE)
The NetSCOPE project recognizes teacher quality as the most important factor in raising student achievement. South Carolina excels in academic standards, assessment, and school accountability. However, recent findings indicate that in half of South Carolina schools, more than 70% of students live in poverty. Historically Winthrop University has been on the forefront of intensive reform debate on behalf of P-16 students in our high-need schools, their teachers, and teacher preparation programs.
Through research-based practices in teacher education, development, and leadership, NetSCOPE will accomplish four goals: improve student academic achievement in high need districts, improve professional learning for school-university faculty and teacher candidates, strengthen the pre-baccalaureate education of teacher candidates, and increase support for new teachers.
With an emphasis in five surrounding high-need, recipient districts and four resource districts, the NetSCOPE project is generally funded by the US Department of Education Teacher Quality Grant program (award number U336S090144).
