California Principals’ Support Network

As of Summer 2021, the CAPS Network is functioning independently of UC Davis.

The California Principals’ Support Network (CAPS) was launched by the UC Davis Center for Applied Policy in Education to support principals in their leadership roles in their schools through an annual series of facilitated sessions with a cohort of peers.

California Superintendents Collaborative Network’s primary objective is to form an ongoing network of practicing superintendents who are deeply committed to creating coherent and effective systems of instruction in their districts; a network of superintendents who have a genuine willingness to collaboratively explore a variety of implementation strategies that support teaching and learning of all students using a “problems of practice and theories of action” model of inquiry.

The three-year Systems Transformation Collaborative lead by Dr. Michael Fullan accelerates the ability of 75 schools in California districts to substantially improve student achievement for all students. This program deepens leadership skills at all levels to mobilize commitment and energy to achieve shared goals with a laser-like focus on improved instruction.

Problems of Practice: The Necessary Steps

What is a problem of practice? A problem of practice is an area that a school or school district identifies that focuses on the instructional core, is directly observable, is actionable, and connects to a broader strategy of improvement. Identifying a problem of practice is the first step and element of instructional rounds. After the problem of practice is identified, the theory of action, or the tentative solution to the issue, can be applied to begin addressing the problem.
