The Collaboration for Effective Educator Development, Accountability, and Reform (CEEDAR) Center, a new national center funded by the U.S. Department of Education Office of Special Education Programs is announcing a national call seeking state partners, including state departments of education and teacher and leader preparation programs to work collaboratively to promote, support, and reinforce teacher and leader effectiveness across the career continuum and thereby ensure that students with disabilities achieve college and career readiness in inclusive settings.
Announced today, states have the opportunity to apply for CEEDAR’s intensive technical assistance for up to five 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 conjunction with SEAs and IHEs.
