“Perry Township Schools is thrilled to partner with Olivet Nazarene University to provide two innovative, accelerated programs for our educators who seek to enhance their knowledge and continue their education,” said Perry Superintendent Patrick Mapes.
The partnership will offer two education programs for Perry Township: Ethical Building Leadership and English Language Learners.
“We are pleased to introduce two programs to the Perry Township community that will equip their educators with the tools necessary to be exemplary school leaders someday,” said Olivet’s Dr. Karen Dowling, associate dean of The Institute of Education and Teacher Excellence.
School of Graduate & Continuing Studies plans to start an EBL custom cohort with Perry teachers on February 26th, 2018. Any interested teachers are welcome to attend a district-wide information meeting on Tuesday, December 5th at 4:30 p.m. at the Perry Township Education Center, room 210.
The partnership builds on Olivet’s School of Graduate & Continuing Studies, which has sites in Indiana, Illinois and Michigan. The main campus is in Bourbonnais, Ill., 50 miles south of Chicago.
