light bridge
Light Bridge, headed by Professor Jim Fouche, received a $1.5 million grant to prepare pre-service teachers to use technology in the classroom.

Teacher credential programs were developed to meet new state standards and all received state approval. SSU credential programs now include intern programs as an alternate route to a teaching career. The reading credential programs offer summer reading courses for children.

With California state accreditation granted in 1998, the School is preparing for national accreditation from NCATE, the National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education.

Grants and contracts increased from $306,632 in 1997-1998 to more than $2.9 million in 2001-2002, with eight of the grants in the area of education technology.


Partnerships with K-12 schools in the North Bay region were strengthened with the creation of three professional development schools and elementary collaboration sites.

Martha Rapp Ruddell, Professor of Education, served as President of the National Reading Council.

Phyllis Fernlund, Dean of the School of Education, was elected President of the Teacher Education Council of State College and Universities.


In 2003 the School moved to remodeled offices on the first floor of Stevenson Hall.
