About CCLA

What is CCLA?

The California Collaborative of Learning Acceleration is a grant funded project aimed to advance a statewide professional learning initiative to mitigate the impact of COVID. 

To support educators with the task of accelerating student learning, CCLA provides an evidence-based professional learning model that supports the implementation of pedagogy and practice, particularly in mathematics, literacy, and language development. 

Learning Acceleration is “about building bridges rather than filling holes” and provides student access to current grade-level content, rather than returning them to past content. 

CCLA's Vision

To build the capacity of administrators, teachers, paraeducators, and instructional coaches to support all students in TK-12, regardless of gender, race, learning differences, and socio-economic background through equitable, inclusive, evidence-based strategies intentionally integrated system-wide. 

Ultimately, the goal is that every student in California has developed math, literacy, and language development knowledge as well as student agency within the learning environments that accelerate learning.

CCLA's Resources

The design of this work will include an online repository of high-quality professional learning resources for mathematics, literacy, and language development that integrate Universal Design for Learning, culturally sustaining pedagogy, and social-emotional learning practices within the Multi-Tiered System of Support framework.  

CCLA Regional Hubs

The regional hubs are actively engaged in developing capacity across the state through local support and capacity building, professional learning networks, regional events, and customized coaching, providing the foundation for local sustainability following the conclusion of the grant.

CCLA Partners

The partners are supporting the development and vetting of professional learning content and resources.  They provide guidance on research based methodologies and pedagogies.
