PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT SCHOOLS

PDS BYLAWS

The PDS Consortium is a group of designated representatives (liaisons) from several PDS schools that meet at regularly scheduled times to discuss issues related to the PDS program, establish policy, foster specific PDS initiatives, provide an essential communication link with Buffalo State and jointly registered colleges, and raise and/or allocate available funds for various initiatives. 

Membership of the PDS Consortium includes the Chair of the Elementary Education and Reading Department from Buffalo State (or designated person with decision making power from the college) and three designated liaisons from each PDS. These include the Principal (or designated person with decision making power), (2) the Liaison Committee Coordinator (or designated person with decision making power), and (3) the BS college faculty member (or designated person with decision making power). Further, all Buffalo State faculty including Student Teacher supervisors, adjuncts, student members, and jointly registered faculty from other colleges are also welcome participants of the Professional Development Schools Consortium.
