The Teachers College of San Joaquin has received a $55,000 grant from the Intrepid Philanthropy Foundation to provide fellowships to incoming graduate students.

The Teachers College, based in Stockton, describes itself as California's first graduate school focused solely on training teachers in K-12 school reform.

The grant will support delegations of teachers from seven schools to go through the Teachers College masters program together, implementing the reform strategies they learn directly in their own schools, according to a press release.

Delegations must be supported by their school leadership, including a letter of recommendation from the school for application to the masters program. Additionally, delegations must commit to teaching at the same school together for a minimum of two years.

Examples of current Teachers College graduate students' work includes developing guidelines to better transition eighth graders into high school settings, studying the process of transitioning traditional middle schools to career-academies for implementation in a Sacramento middle school, and developing a handbook outlining a program for the Foster Youth System in Oregon that connects teens in foster system with career apprenticeships.

The Teachers College of San Joaquin was established by the San Joaquin Office of Education in 2009 as California's first graduate school to be established through a county office of education.

Informational meetings are held monthly at the SJCOE Professional Development Center, 2857 Transworld Dr., in Stockton. For dates and times, visit www.teacherscollegesj.org.

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
