Reform Efforts

1) Teacher and Leader Preparation Programs include opportunities for gaining knowledge and practice in High Leverage Practices and Evidence Based Practices.

2) Educator Preparation Programs and Districts collaborate to provide clinical practice opportunities for teacher candidates which are mutually beneficial for P-12 students.

3) Create a system of communication and collaboration between Educator Preparation Programs and Districts to support the implementation of effective practices in multiple content areas – High Leverage Practices, Equity, Trauma, Social-Emotional, and Effective Remote Instruction.
