Year In Review 2014

Central Valley Educational Leadership Institute (CVELI), along with university schools of education and county offices of education throughout the region, responded to the significant changes in California’s PreK-12 education by providing needed support to school and district leaders through this transition year. School districts across the Central Valley were stretched as they navigated the implementation of the Local Control Funding Formula, development of Local Control Action Plans, expansion of Transitional Kindergarten, funding of regional career pathway networks, and preparation for implementation of the new Common Core State Standards (CCSS).

Under the auspices of the Kremen School of Education and Human Development at Fresno State, CVELI aims to bring best leadership practices to all aspects of the education system in the San Joaquin Valley. Likewise, the organization works to eliminate the achievement gap and raise the performance of all learners.
