Director and Co-Investigator of a grant partnership aimed to provide ongoing professional development for 110 grade 3-8 science teachers and their administrators to develop a deeper understanding of CA new science standards- NGSS. This partnership is a continuation of the Alameda County Office of Education’s work with Cal State East Bay and local school districts. The Science Faculty from CSU East Bay and the Science Department from Alameda County Office of Education work cohesively to provide an intensive professional learning experience for participants. New understanding about effective professional learning and how to support teachers and students transition into the innovations that NGSS demands is shared with others through professional development events, conferences and papers

Region 4, System of District and School Support

No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act of 2001 requires each state to establish a statewide system of intensive and sustained support and improvement for local education agencies and schools receiving Title I funding to increase opportunities for all students to meet state academic content and achievement standards. As a result, the Regional System of District and School Support (RSDSS) was established, and partners with the California Department of Education (CDE), the Comprehensive Assistance Center, and county offices of education to form the Statewide System of School Support (S4) and satisfy the requirements of NCLB. The RSDSS of Region 4 provides leadership, resources, and technical assistance to the schools, districts, and county offices of Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Napa, San Francisco, San Mateo and Solano in order to increase their collective capacity to support students in meeting or exceeding the state's academic content standards.

Cancellation Policy: Registrations cancelled seven (7) working days or less prior to the workshop are assessed the full charge of the registration.  If the registration is cancelled eight (8) to fifteen (15) working days prior to the workshop, a fifty percent charge is assessed.  If the registration is cancelled sixteen (16) or more working days prior to the workshop, a full refund is given. ***RSDSS reserves the right to cancel or reschedule our trainings as necessary***
