KTE 1: Building University and School District Partnerships
CSU EPPs form deep partnerships with school districts and create a shared vision of effective K-12 instruction that includes a mutual commitment to the recruitment, preparation, support, and retention of teachers who are Black, Indigenous, and People of Color.
Aim: By June 2023, through collaboration with K12 partners, we will increase employment of Latinx candidates from 24% to 32% of eligible completers.
North Star: By June 2026
- We will increase employment rate from 24% to 50%.
- We will increase retention of those employed beyond one year from 50% to 75%
Key Leverage Areas Being Addressed: Team Cal Poly SLO has launched a partnership with their county’s human resources directors to share data and bridge information gaps as part of a routine in their quarterly meetings. A smaller volunteer task force meets more regularly.
They are also testing ways to humanize the hiring process by providing student-created profiles for potential employers with photos and personal statements from candidates.
