Transforming Education in California

Welcome to the Transforming Education in California landing page! The 2021 Budget Act included significant new funding for TK-12 schools, and the possibilities to transform schools and communities through these investments became the charge. In response, we began a series of webinars in December 2021 aimed at unpacking the three largest initiatives—the Expanded Learning Opportunities Program, Universal Transitional Kindergarten, and the California Community Schools Partnership Program – and identifying strategic places for integration across initiatives to maximize the good work already underway. On this site, you can find those learning experiences and other just in time supports, as you continue the hard and necessary work of transforming education in your systems.
