California Collaborative for Educational Excellence (CCEE)

CCEE’s Role in the System of Support
We Partner to Provide Professional Development

The CCEE and the California Department of Education (CDE) are partnering to develop two key initiatives under the System of Support that will provide incredible professional learning opportunities for educators across the state: 21st Century California School Leadership Academy (21CSLA) and the Educator Workforce Investment Grant (EWIG). Here is an overview of each initiative and additional details:

21st Century CA School Leadership Academy (21CSLA)

21CSLA is a statewide professional learning initiative for administrators and other school leaders. The CCEE and CDE are responsible for establishing a process to organize and offer professional learning opportunities, and select providers who will apply for grants.
