Integrated Professional Learning Systems (IPLS) Initiative Report Moving California Toward a Statewide Model for Professional Growth that Prioritizes Teaching
Between 2014 and 2016, REEd at UC Davis worked closely with schools, districts, and county office of education throughout California on the Integrated Professional Learning Systems (IPLS) initiative. IPLS aimed to ensure that support for teaching practices was an integral component of every teacher evaluation and professional growth system in California.
The IPLS report includes the goals and actions of the initiative, key design principles, implementation strategies, and outcomes – including two case study vignettes. The IPLS initiative focuses on capacity building as an approach for fostering professional growth of educators.
