The 325,000-member California Teachers Association (CTA) is partnering with the Stanford Center for Opportunity Policy in Education (SCOPE) and the National Board Resource Center at Stanford University  (NBRC) to be at the forefront of educator-driven professional development that will benefit all schools and all students.

The Instructional Leadership Corps (ILC) is a multi-year project to build a statewide network of accomplished classroom teachers and other education leaders who provide professional development to assist California public school educators in the implementation of the new California Standards for English Language Arts/English Language Development and Mathematics and the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS).

In its first two years, the ILC project has served over 40,000 educators representing more than 2,000 California public schools in at least 356 districts. Learn more about the focus of the ILC in 2016–17 here: ILC Year Three Project Description.

The ILC project has been made possible in part by grants from the S. D. Bechtel, Jr. Foundation, the Stuart Foundation, the National Education Association, the California Education Policy Fund (CEPF), and the Community Education Fund grant-making strategy of Silicon Valley Community Foundation

Every child deserves a chance to learn and no child succeeds alone.
