INTERNSHIP PROGRAM: EMPLOYEES OF LOCAL DISTRICTS
Kutztown University is proud to be the first Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education institution to offer a special education PreK-12 internship program for individuals who are employed in a school district surrounding Kutztown and who have passed their PRAXIS exams. This allows individuals to pursue their certification while maintaining their current employment. The internship program is part of KU's post-baccalaureate special education PreK-12 certification. Requirements can be found online.

WEATHER

Weather forecasts are provided by KU's Dr. Michael Davis and "Monsoon Mike" Regensburger

Today, similar to yesterday, will lean on the cloudier side due to the close proximity of a front to our south which will begin advancing north as a warm front. It'll be largely dry, though, so don't expect much in the way of any drought-busting showers. Highs around 78. Light south winds.

CAMPUSWIDE SPRING TURF APPLICATIONS
TruGreen is scheduled Friday, May 28, to apply the annual campus spring fertilizer and weed control application.
