CEEDAR Center Announces National Call for States to Request Intensive Technical Assistance

The Collaboration for Effective Educator Development, Accountability, and Reform (CEEDAR) Center, a national center funded by the U.S. Department of Education Office of Special Education Programs, is announcing a national call seeking state partners.  State departments of education and teacher and leader preparation programs will work collaboratively to promote, support, and reinforce teacher and leader effectiveness across the career continuum ensuring that students with disabilities achieve college and career readiness in inclusive settings.

Announced last week, states have the opportunity to apply for CEEDAR’s intensive technical assistance for up to four years. Through the CEEDAR Center, states will have opportunities to create strategic partnerships among SEAs and IHEs to support teacher and leader education faculty and administrators, researchers, state policymakers, and school based professionals, for the purpose of building and sustaining an aligned, coherent, and systemic approach to personnel preparation. The Chief State School Officer or designee must submit an on-line application in collaboration with SEAs and IHEs.
