“In our work with districts and schools we emphasize the importance of making time available for teachers to collaborate, plan and support one another to improve their practice. Professional learning communities are now widely promoted for bringing teachers together to focus work on common interests and concerns. However, there has been much less emphasis on collaboration to enhance practice among school and district administrators and other education professionals. The tremendous value of the California Collaborative on District Reform is that it fills this void.”
