Professional Learning Calendar

Professional Learning Calendar

Initial value

The CCCOE Curriculum and Instruction Department provides professional learning opportunities in a variety of areas. The 2019-2020 academic school year areas of focus were developed with input from our Contra Costa COE Curriculum Council. Our 18 school districts and COE student programs provided valuable feedback regarding professional learning needs.





Supported by San Mateo, Contra Costa, Los Angeles & Alameda County Offices of Education

We would like to share an opportunity for any educators interested in learning and reflecting with peers and giving feedback to CDE regarding our 2021 Mathematics Framework Revised Draft during the first 60 day Field Review. CCCOE is collaborating with 3 other county offices to support a structured but open space to learn and reflect.
