Abstract: The problem on which this study focused was the improvement of teacher professional development. The study had two focal points: a review of existing programs of multi-agency collaborative efforts and the development of a plan of collaboration for teacher professional development which involves local school districts, higher education, and state departments of public instruction. Five procedures were used in this study: a review of significant literature in the area of collaborative programs involving local school districts, higher education, and state departments of public instruction; a description and analysis of selected collaborative programs, an analysis of common characteristics found in collaborative programs, the development of a plan for multi-agency collaboration for teacher professional development, and the submission of the plan to leading authorities.
