The University of Michigan School of Education is working in partnership with Ann Arbor Public Schools to develop laboratory schools to open in fall 2011, beginning with plans for programs at Mitchell Elementary School and at Scarlett Middle School. In these schools, intern teachers from the School of Education will work with students at the schools before, during, and after school hours.

Catherine Reischl, who is coordinating the program with Ann Arbor schools, said the partnership is being planned for three to five years. "The key is all about collaboration and growth for everybody involved," Reischl said. "We're looking forward to really studying what we're doing with teachers to improve how we learn and grow professionally."

The School of Education will also continue to place teacher interns in Ann Arbor schools other than Scarlett and Mitchell.

The lab schools partnership was covered in a story on the website, posted on September 14, 2010.
