Improving Teacher Quality Request for Proposals

Eligible School Districts

There are two tests a district must meet to be eligible:
  1. The district must be a high-need school district as determined by federal census data (free and reduced lunch percentages are not a factor). Review the list of school districts to find out if a district meets this requirement or not.

  2. The district must be one in which a high percentage of teachers are teaching subjects outside of their certification level OR in which there is a high percentage of teachers with emergency, provisional, or temporary credentials. If you have determined that your partner district meets the first test, you may send an inquiry to for assistance determining whether the district meets this test. Some data on the qualifications of teachers in a given district is available on California Department of Education DataQuest (though additional data may need to be provided by the district).
