This is a two-component project designed to simultaneously meet district needs of two levels of educators who teach English learners (ELs): 1) Collaborative Education (CE) training for PreK-12 teachers who possess a MA degree (i.e., CE Scholars), and 2) Masters Degree and Endorsement for K-6 teachers with a BA degree wishing to pursue advance training (i.e., MA Scholars). The DECE project prepares educators to improve instruction for ELs (Absolute Priority), including those at-risk or with disabilities, in a high needs rural county school district that includes several dual language schools.
