Comprised of teachers, administrators, county office specialists and partners from higher education, research agencies, professional learning organizations, advocacy groups, and private foundations across the state, the Partnership leverages the communities of practice model to build educators’ capacity to provide meaningful mathematics and science teaching and learning statewide. At the forefront of this effort is a vision of equity and excellence for every California student.
A vision of equity and excellence for every California student.
A prime example of this vision in action is the Partnership’s Fostering Standards Implementation Program. This 2018 grant program leveraged partnerships between COEs, districts, science-rich educational institutions and professional learning programs to develop content-rich materials to support math and science learning for all students.
Guided by the state’s Standards Implementation Steering Committee comprised of CCSESA, CDE, CCEE, CISC and SBE members and staff, the Partnership provides the support system and infrastructure to bring together content leaders with diverse backgrounds and perspectives at the state and local levels. As a cohesive unit, the Partnership identifies, builds and promotes a coherent set of understandings, strategies, resources and tools aligned to math and science standards and instructional frameworks for educators to share, review and use throughout the state.
