Partner Schools

Advantages for Partner Schools

BYU-Idaho Advantages 

  • Partner schools have committed to place at 3 to 5 BYU-Idaho students each semester.
  • Each partner school is selected because the school is committed to improving their practice, innovate, and providing the highest quality experience to their students and ours.
  • Working with other BYU-Idaho Student Teachers to collaborate in daily and weekly cohort seminars.
  • Some additional training or collaboration opportunities will be provided (SIOP, REACH, Covey, Center for Educational Excellence).
  • Regular contact and collaboration between site faculty and our campus faculty.
  • Clinical faculty selected who match the culture and climate of the school where they supervise.
  • Matched mentor teachers to the student's demographic information and desires.
  • BYU-Idaho hopes to share research and experiences that will improve schools' practices. 
  • Student Teachers can be involved in extracurricular activities.
  • Ideas can be shared with mentor teachers based on best practices learned on campus.

Partner School Advantages 

  • Principals interview and select which students come to their schools.
  • Students can be selected to match the culture and climate of the school, to fulfill current or anticipated needs of the school (employment), and to address other concerns the school might have. The school will be able to plan on the arrival and resources these students provide.
  • The school will benefit from the infusion of energy and training on current best practices our students will bring.
  • The collaboration will influence what and how BYU-Idaho teaches.
  • The idea for partner schools has been discussed with various partner schools over the last six years.
  • School districts help to produce future employees that are specifically prepared to teach students within the climate and culture of their specific district.
  • Student Teacher ratios can be reduced.
  • New insights can cause reflection on improving current practices.
  • The Partner Schools program is focused on collaboration between BYU-Idaho and the individual schools.
