21CSLA Advisory Council


Support equity-focused state level initiatives by collectively amplifying each other in service of improving CA TK-12 public education for all students and specifically those most historically-marginalized. The 21CSLA Advisory structure is designed to inform the project through stakeholder feedback, on multiple levels, as part of the continuous improvement activities. In addition, the 21CSLA Advisory will support communication to the field to increase access of district, school site, and teacher leaders to 21CSLA resources. Engaging with stakeholders on a regular basis to inform 21CSLA State Center and Regional Academies has been embedded into the activities in multiple ways.
