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
Beginning in March 2019, California Department of Education (CDE) and Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CTC) staff will be conducting 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 will be providing 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.
The CDE will provide web-based trainings for those that are unable to attend an in-person training. The in-person trainings will be broken up into three separate webinars. Participants should attend all three webinars to receive all of the content from the in-person trainings. In addition, the CDE will begin hosting office hours on Mondays from 1–2 p.m. starting April 15, 2019.
