Participating School Districts

The school districts participating in the Yale National Initiative include those with Teachers Institutes and those that are planning or exploring the creation of such Institutes . Colleges and universities and public school districts may explore the desirability of establishing a Teachers Institute for their own community. Public school teachers from communities that have Teachers Institutes or are planning or exploring a Teachers Institute may apply to participate as Fellows in national seminars held at Yale. The twin purposes of these seminars are to provide first-hand experience in the Teachers Institute Approach and to acquaint participants with the Understandings and Procedures necessary for a Teachers Institute.
