Learning Acceleration System Grant
The Learning Acceleration System Grant builds systems and capacity to provide California educators with professional learning in evidence-based strategies to accelerate student learning.
Theory of Action
The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and, in some cases, extended periods of remote instruction, may have contributed to lost instructional time for California students.
Section 152 of Assembly Bill (AB) 130 (the 2021-22 Education Omnibus Trailer Bill), as amended by Section 143 of AB 167 (Chapter 252, Statutes of 2021), appropriates funding to the California Collaborative for Educational Excellence (CCEE) to administer, in partnership with one or more county offices of education, “…evidenced-based professional education for educators that can support learning acceleration, particularly in mathematics, literacy, and language development.” This will be done by building sustainable structures of professional learning to improve teaching and maximize learning.
What is Learning Acceleration?
Accelerated learning strategies are those designed to meet pupils where they are in their learning and use evidence-based approaches to enable pupils to make strong and rapid progress in their mastery of knowledge and skills. These strategies may include individual or small group tutoring or whole class instruction using well-grounded methods with scaffolding and differentiation that meet pupils’ specific needs.
To learn more about the key components of learning acceleration, resources, and research please visit the CCEE’s Playbook for Accelerating Learning.
