The Towson Learning Network is committed to helping teachers in school systems throughout Maryland access Towson University campus resources. We support the Maryland Professional Development School Network by providing graduate-level courses to teachers in Professional Development Schools (PDS) in 12 local school systems:
The Towson Learning Network offers single courses in Professional Development Schools upon request and in collaboration with school improvement teams. Courses available may be found in the Graduate School Catalog, in the College of Education section.
Registration for single courses in Professional Development Schools is coordinated through the school administrator or the school's PDS liaison.
PDS Courses – Tuition, Fees and Reimbursement
Students enrolled in PDS Single Courses pay a non-refundable, non-reimbursable closed contract fee of $100. The tuition cost for a PDS single course is paid by the respective school system assuming that students complete the course with a grade of B or better. In addition, if a student receives an Incomplete or a grade for which the school system does not provide reimbursement, the student will be responsible for paying the tuition amount that would be billed to the school system.
Students are also responsible for paying the tuition amount that would be billed to their school system if they do not withdraw before the third class meeting. Withdrawing from the course does not release students from the responsibility for the closed contract fee. Students who need to withdraw from a class after they have registered must fax an official withdrawal request including name, TU ID#, course number and name and reason for withdrawing from the course to 410-704-4250.
More information about Professional Development Schools is available from the College of Education's Center for Professional Practice.
