COE Sponsors Run To Read 5K Race in Schaumburg

The College of Education is proud to again sponsor
Schaumburg School District 54's Run To Read Road
Race, scheduled for Sept. 27, 2015.  This is the second year that the College of Education has been a sponsor.

Currently, the college has two formal partnerships with District 54 schools: Hoover Math and Science Academy and Nerge Elementary School.  The faculty and principals of these schools work closely with our elementary education program to provide field experiences and student teaching for elementary teacher candidates with strong backgrounds in math and science.

Roosevelt's Language and Literacy Program hosts a Summer Reading Clinic that enrolls a substantial number of District 54 students each year.  A new graduate program in Instructional Leadership is preparing approximately 20 teacher and principal leaders for several high schools that District 54 students attend upon their graduation from middle school.
