The California Alliance for Teacher Preparation Partnerships
CALIFORNIA ALLIANCE FOR TEACHER PREPARATION PARTNERSHIPS PLANS
The California Alliance is a new statewide partnership that will initiate a range of innovative clinical approaches for preparing future teaches. It will seek results that significantly improve both the preparation of novice teachers and the learning of all students in a broad range of settings, thereby contributing to closing achievement gaps. It is a network of voluntary partnerships across the state between teacher preparation institutions, schools and school districts, and other stakeholders.
The California Alliance has identified five key initial areas for partnerships advancing highly promising innovations in teacher education. Universities and P-12 partners may select one or more of these or other areas in teacher education that are of interest to them and become further involved in the Alliance.
Please have one institution within your Alliance partnership take a few minutes to complete this brief form. It asks about your initial plans for participating in the Alliance. Responses are requested by May 15, 2012. If the requested information is not available at that time, please make every effort to submit the plan by July 1, 2012.
