CDE Survey for Educator Workforce Investment Grant (EWIG) 

The CDE and the CCEE are seeking input through a survey to comply with the requirements of Senate Bill 75 to establish the Educator Workforce Investment Grant (EWIG) program to support one or more competitive grants for professional learning opportunities for teachers and paraprofessionals across the state. They will be establishing a process to select one or more institutions of higher education or nonprofit organizations to conduct activities in the following areas:
  1. Professional learning activities to implement the California English Learner Roadmap Policy
  2. Special education-related professional learning
  3. Professional learning for teachers and paraprofessionals statewide in the following areas:
  • Practices and strategies to create a positive school climate, including social-emotional learning and restorative justice
  • Strategies for providing high-quality instruction and computer science learning experiences aligned to the 2018 California Computer Science Standards
  • Practices to support the 2020 Ethnic Studies Model Curriculum
Stakeholder input on "critical areas" for professional learning for teachers and paraprofessionals may be accessed through the EWIG Development Input Survey or

The survey will close on October 25, 2019. Since October 25 is a Friday, the survey will remain open throughout the entire weekend.

Draft LCAP Redesign Template

The California Department of Education (CDE) has developed a survey to solicit feedback from stakeholders regarding both the draft Local Control and Accountability Plan Template (LCAP) and draft LCAP Template instructions. The survey will be available from October 9, 2019 through November 1, 2019. The survey may be accessed here:

Based on feedback from the State Board of Education (SBE) at its September 2019 meeting, and in an effort to ensure the template and instructions support local educational agencies (LEAs) in the development of the LCAP beyond the minimum requirements, it has been decided that the CDE will present the finalized draft LCAP Template (including instructions) to the SBE at its January 2020 meeting for adoption.

Many Thanks

It would be impossible to thank everyone who has helped the ILC reach more than 120,000 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
