Please pass this Learning Forward funding opportunity on to your districts and charter stakeholders, particularly those who serve high-needs schools or shortage areas. Note the 3 questions that teams of teachers will be invited to address:
1) Analysis of teachers' primary professional learning needs;
2) An educator-informed theory of action around how to leverage professional learning to advance teaching and learning; and
3) Specific recommendations for states, districts, and schools to consider as guides to their Consolidated Plans and/or state and district Title II plans, a requirement of ESSA, and the design of effective professional learning in their systems.
Learning Forward will host two informational webinars on April 27th and May 11th. Applications are due by June 10th.
