In line with LCFF and California’s ESSA plan, districts and schools across the state are increasingly seeking to use continuous improvement to identify areas of focus and to shape their approach to addressing performance gaps and improve student outcomes. For many districts, this raises two critical questions: 1) How do we support educators in learning continuous improvement? And 2) What school and district conditions facilitate continuous improvement work? As part of its work in the CORE-PACE Research Partnership, PACE spent the 2018-19 school year studying improvement efforts in the CORE districts and how the CORE capability-building programs and other supports are helping their districts and school take up continuous improvement. In this seminar, Alix Gallagher (PACE) will present lessons learned about these critical questions from the most recent research report and case studies, and Rick Miller (CORE districts) will discuss how these findings are influencing CORE’s approach moving forward.

Lunch will be served at 11:30am. The presentations will be begin at 12:00pm.
