The Rhode Island CEEDAR team, comprised of PK-12, Educator Preparation, and RI Department of Education representatives, collaborates to ensure strong educator preparation leading to increased student achievement for every Rhode Island learner. The RI CEEDAR team accomplishes this by encouraging strong, innovative, mutually beneficial partnerships focused on clinical practice; supporting partners in creating and sustaining a culturally responsive, inclusive, and equity-minded context for learning and leading; and ensuring that every Rhode Island student has access to high quality instruction that supports learning and achievement.
We see a future where every student’s educational pathway is guided by teachers, counselors, and leaders who represent the community. Educators are prepared for their complex work through dynamic PK-12 and educator preparation partnerships to use evidence-based, inclusive, and culturally responsive practices, ensuring just and equitable access to learning and growth for all.
Rhode Island’s CEEDAR blueprint is focused on four areas:
1) Continuous improvement
2) Mutually beneficial partnerships
3) Equity and access
4) Literacy & dyslexia, leveraged by the Rhode Island Right to Read Act
