National Call 2014

National Call for States to Request CEEDAR Intensive Technical Assistance Released May 6th and is Due August 1st.

The Collaboration for Effective Educator Development, Accountability, and Reform (CEEDAR) Center seeks state partners, including state departments of education and teacher and leadership preparation programs, to work collaboratively to promote, support, and reinforce teacher and leader effectiveness across the career continuum and thereby ensure that students with disabilities achieve college and career readiness in inclusive settings.

The Chief State School Officer or designee must submit an on-line application in conjunction with SEAs and state IHEs.
