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.
Since Fall 2014, the Instructional Leadership Corps (ILC) project has served over 50,000 educators representing more than 2,000 California public schools in at least 356 districts.
Phase Two of the ILC Project
We are delighted to announce that we expect funding to further support the ILC of accomplished public K–12 and higher education professionals. We will select a Phase Two cohort to provide professional development to assist educators in implementing the California Standards to grow the instructional leadership capacity of California public school educators.
Phase Two goals include: 1) Grow the capacity of ILC teams to sustain and embed ILC work in local learning communities; 2) Create and sustain self-supporting models of Educators Educating Educators.
We will accomplish these goals by focusing on the following:
- Deepen investments in educational entities that have demonstrated significant success, or the potential for significant success, in ILC Project Principles taking root. (Apply by 5/8/17)
- Develop a system of support for ILC members that includes Peer Support Providers from the cohort of Phase One ILC members. (Apply by 5/8/17)
- Expand into several rural or geographically isolated sites that the ILC currently is not serving and where educators are under-served by other providers. (Application period opens Summer 2017)
