The 325,000-member California Teachers Association (CTA) is partnering with the Stanford Center for Opportunity Policy in Education (SCOPE) and the National Board Resource Center at Stanford University (NBRC) to be at the forefront of educator-driven professional development that will benefit all schools and all students.

Since Fall 2014, the Instructional Leadership Corps (ILC) project has served over 100,000 educators representing more than 2,000 California public schools in at least 495 districts.

Phase Two goals include: 1) Grow the capacity of ILC teams to sustain and embed ILC work in local learning communities; 2) Create and sustain self-supporting models of Educators Educating Educators.
