The L.A. Compact has partnered with the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD), and ten local higher education institutions to develop the Los Angeles Educator Pathways Partnership (LAEPP) with the goal of investigating best practices and driving continuous improvement in local teacher preparation programs to enhance student learning in LAUSD. The partners recently executed a landmark data sharing agreement which will match data on teacher candidates from various local teacher training programs to data on K-12 schools and students in the Los Angeles Unified School District to address common research questions around teacher and student outcomes. To date, six institutions of higher education have executed the data sharing agreement, with two others expected in the first half of 2014.
UNITE-LA is seeking a Data Sharing Coordination Consultant to support the work of LAEPP over the next 3 – 6 months (with the possibility of an extension) by acting as a liaison between the partners, to implement the data sharing agreement between the Los Angeles Unified School District and participating teacher preparation programs at local higher education institutions.
