Announcing Equity & Accountability Community Teach-Ins Across California


Join Congregations Organized for Prophetic Engagement (C.O.P.E.), the Mexican American Opportunity Foundation (MAOF), the South Stockton Schools Initiative, and Youth Together, in partnership with Ed Trust–West, for equity and accountability community teach-in events throughout the state.

From the current political climate to California’s redesign of our education accountability system, a lot is going on in the education world these days. Email us to RSVP and join our partner organizations and us for these events covering:

  • What advocates need to know to support educational equity efforts across the state
  • The status of California’s education accountability system redesign
  • How to get engaged in the education accountability state plan process
  • Updates on what new state and federal policies, including the Every Student Succeeds Act, mean for educational equity
  • The latest on the Local Control Funding Formula implementation

The California Collaborative for Educational Excellence is also hosting a series of workshops about the accountability system’s dashboard of information on how schools are doing. For more information, visit the CCEE website here.
