Cross-Agency Collaboration as a Lever for Strengthening the Teaching Workforce

Friday February 9, 2024
9:30 - 11:00 AM

As states across the country struggle to attract and prepare teachers to fill critical gaps in the educator workforce, the availability of one-time funds presents an unprecedented opportunity to provide affordable, high-quality pathways into the profession. Effectively leveraging one-time funds can require coordination and collaboration across multiple state and local entities – including state departments of education, credentialing authorities, higher education institutions, and school districts, among others. This session will showcase the work of a cross-agency state collaborative in California focused on bringing state leaders together to identify and overcome implementation barriers to ensuring that teachers have access to affordable high-quality, clinically rich pathways into the profession, with a particular focus on increasing the number of teachers serving early childhood and multi-language learners.
