California Collaborative for Educational Excellence (CCEE)

Professional Learning Networks

Bringing various education stakeholders together for an ongoing exchange of knowledge and capacity building is the goal of CCEE’s Professional Learning Networks (PLNs). Groups comprised of county office of education leaders, school district officials, and charter school educators learn from each other about how to continually improve student learning.

To date, more than 300 local educational agencies (LEAs) in California are connected through PLNs which the CCEE organizes and facilitates.
