Promises to Keep

Ensuring that equal opportunity is not just a possibility, but a promise.


We Provide Opportunities to Learn for Teachers and Leaders

CEEDAR stands for “Collaboration for Effective Educator Development, Accountability and Reform.” We help states and institutions of higher education reform their teacher and leader preparation programs, revise licensure standards to align with reforms, refine personnel evaluation systems, and realign policy structures and professional learning systems.

CEEDAR Intensive Technical Assistance

Intensive TA involves the CEEDAR Center developing ongoing relationships and providing products and services to key stakeholders in selected states to assist in reforming their existing systems of teacher and leader preparation. The CEEDAR Center selected 20 states to receive intensive TA, beginning with five in 2013. In each intensive state, the CEEDAR Center established intensive TA partnerships with the SEA, at least three IHEs, and interested LEAs. System reform and improvement efforts included (a) revising licensure and certification standards, (b) enhancing content, structure, and practice in teacher education and leader education programs, and (c) refining statewide data systems to improve these teacher and leader programs.
