Grants to this Grantee
for general support of the Center for Collaborative Policy to improve problem solving, policy making and governance in California
for support of EdInsights and the Education Policy Fellowship Program
Located at California State University—Sacramento, EdInsights conducts research, evaluation, technical assistance, and policy analysis to help K-12 and higher education policymakers, practitioners, and educators improve students’ readiness for, and success in, some form of postsecondary education. This Serving Bay Area Communities grant supports EdInsights to bring to California the Institute for Educational Leadership’s "Education Policy Fellowship Program" (EPFP)—a professional development program focused on strengthening policy knowledge, leadership skills, and networking for annual cohorts. Professional development and networking tailored to the needs of the state and focused on women and minority leaders will help increase the diversity of leaders addressing the relationship between K-12 schooling for students and their postsecondary success.
