Strategic partnership providing professional development for educators of underserved students

Santa Barbara, CA (April 20, 2016) — PD Learning Network (PDLN) and California Association of Latino Superintendents and Administrators (CALSA) are participating in a joint effort to provide a series of courses in leadership development designed to support professional learning of administrators, superintendents and educators. Courses will equip administration to support faculty who teach under­served student populations with a focus on implementing standards, college & career readiness, and closing achievement gaps. Course participants may earn digital badges/micro­-credentials and optional university credit for demonstrating competency.

“We are thrilled to be collaborating with CALSA to facilitate 21st century learning environments for underserved students,” stated PD Learning Network CEO Jennifer Gibson. She added, “We are proud of how our badges and university credit support equity in education and increase our capacity to support CALSA educators’ professional development”

Dr. David Verdugo, CALSA executive director comments, “On behalf of our entire CALSA board of directors, I can share with you that we are very excited about partnering with one of the most dynamic and engaging groups dedicated to professional development. Rest assured that it will add to our member services and assist CALSA in reaching its mission and vision.”
