Instructional Leadership Corps members at Sustaining ILC work in the Field Conference.

The 325,000-member California Teachers Association (CTA) partners 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 benefits all schools and all students.

Since Fall 2014, the Instructional Leadership Corps (ILC) project has served over 109,000 educators representing more than 2,000 California public schools in at least 504 districts.

The work continues! 

The project is deepening investments in existing communities and expanding into rural and geographically isolated sites to sustain partnerships that support our educator-led model of ongoing learning. We continue to support the ILC of accomplished public K–12 and higher education professionals. Goals of the program include: 

1. Growing the capacity of ILC teams to sustain and embed ILC work in local learning communities 
2. Creating and sustaining self-supporting models of Educators Educating Educators.

Check out some of the work created by the ILC in their Tools for Practice. Members developed and shared these materials with colleagues in their local communities through educator-led professional learning sessions. Topics include:

  • Using primary source documents in the classroom
  • Creating workplace conditions for deep, meaningful, and ongoing adult learning
  • Supporting elementary students’ mathematics learning in and out of school (bilingual, specifically tailored for parents and families)

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.
