Research, Assessment and Accountability Partnerships (RAAP) coordinates the strategic support, review, and approval of 18 district Local Control and Accountability Plans (LCAPs). With a commitment to Results Based Accountability (RBA), we support districts' use of state and local assessments, and other measures to develop policies and practices that improve student success.
The Core Learning Department delivers high-quality professional development to teachers, coaches, and administrators. Core Learning helps Alameda County educators implement the new California State Standards in English Language Arts/English Language Development, Math and Science while integrating technology. Our experts convene a Core Coaching Network and an Early Learning Network to support TK-12 content coaches to meet individual student learning needs.
The Integrated Learning Department provides strategies and practices for preK-12 educators, in both in-school and after school/expanded learning spaces, to engage students more deeply, and improve their understanding and achievement across disciplines and in all subject areas through intentional arts integration.
Project Pathways is the fiscal agent for the $14.2 million R4 "Resilient Youth - Ready to Learn - Ready for Work - Ready for Life" grant. Our vision is for youth to flourish in equitable quality programs that lead to wellness, and which empower students with the academic tools to ensure economic success. We build accelerated career and college pathways through a collaboration of schools and agencies in Alameda and Contra Costa counties.
