This District 428/NIU partnership is creating a nationally recognized professional development school to be housed in the new DeKalb High School building scheduled to open in August 2011. The necessary changes in curriculum, teaching methodologies, and organizational arrangements will present transformational opportunities for both institutions as they work together to promote world-class student achievement. The partnership supports collaborative professional development for DHS and NIU faculty, shared research and dissemination of information, and superior preparation of pre-service teachers.
