Dear CLS Members and Supporters,

Like you, up until recently, we thought we had a pretty clear picture of how the rest of the school year and summer break would look. And like many of you, we are finding ourselves having to radically alter the way we do our jobs and how we provide professional learning to California’s educators.

But one thing hasn’t changed: our commitment to you.  Amidst the disruption and uncertainty of COVID-19, we want you to know that we are still here to support you.  As promised, we are rolling out ways for you to access professional learning and our community of educators online. Visit our Online PD page or join one of our Facebook groups:

Elementary Teachers
Middle School Teachers
High School Teachers
Administrators (both school site & district-level)

We hope you will join us in this community of educators. Above all else, we want you to know that we see you and are here for you.

Stay well.
The Board & Staff of CLS
