Promoting Equitable Access to Teachers TrainingProfessional development opportunities to assist local educational agencies with gathering data and reporting disproportionate access to effective, experienced, and appropriately assigned teachers by low-income and minority students.
Professional Development Opportunities
From March through June 2019, California Department of Education (CDE) and Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CTC) staff conducted trainings at county offices of education throughout California regarding the new State Assignment Accountability System (CalSAAS), changes in the California Longitudinal Pupil Achievement Data System (CALPADS), and changes to the state course codes and descriptions. The CalSAAS will use data from the CTC and CDE to identify potential misassignments and provide a communication platform for counties and school districts to address and resolve them. In addition, CDE staff provided information about the Promoting Equitable Access to Teachers (PEAT) program and Title I equity reporting requirements on the Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) Federal Addendum. CDE staff also recorded web-based trainings. Links to those resources are below.
The CDE provided web-based trainings for those who were unable to attend an in-person training. The content of the in-person trainings is broken up into three separate webinars. Participants should view all three webinars to receive all of the content from the in-person trainings. Useful documents to accompany the webinars will also posted below. In addition, the CDE hosted office hours on Mondays from 1–2 p.m. April through June 2019. These office hours are planned to resume in August 2019.
