Many Thanks

It would be impossible to thank everyone who has helped the ILC reach more than 122,000 educators in thousands of schools in at least 530 school districts. We are especially grateful for our funders, without whom none of this would have happened. The ILC project has been made possible in part by grants from the S. D. Bechtel, Jr. Foundation, the Stuart Foundation, the National Education Association, the California Education Policy Fund (CEPF), and the Community Education Fund grant making strategy of Silicon Valley Community Foundation, in addition to in-kind contributions from the project partners, the CTA, SCOPE, and the NBRC.
Kind Regards,
The ILC Team
