Improving Teacher Quality Program: Current Grants and Upcoming Activities. Commission Report 08-26
California Postsecondary Education Commission
Several hundred teachers and thousands of students are benefiting from professional development projects that operate all over California under the auspices of the California Postsecondary Education Commission. The Improving Teacher Quality State Grants Program provides federal funds from the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 to universities that are leaders in teacher professional development. A total of 22 individual grants and two master grants are in various stages in large and small school districts from San Diego to Eureka. Three projects funded in 2001 have concluded large-scale professional development but continue to build sustainable activities. These projects have been provided small amounts of additional funding beyond the fourth year and are working to identify how the projects will continue after funding ceases. This will be the last year the Commission's ITQ program provides funding to these projects. Upcoming activities of the Commission are also discussed in this paper.
