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 Teacher_Quality@cpec.ca.gov 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).
