The Professional Development Coordinating Council (PDCC) is composed of representatives from each of the BYU–Public School Partnership districts, the David O. McKay School of Education, and CITES. Functioning under the direction of the Partnership Governing Board, this committee works with professional development in the partnership districts and teacher preparation at Brigham Young University, with the goal of promoting simultaneous renewal. PDCC activities are of the sort that can be accomplished more effectively by the partnership than by one member alone. Such activities include pilot projects for the benefit of the whole partnership, coursework leading to state endorsements, and conferences and institutes for university and public school personnel.
