CSU-District Partners

CSU campuses and K-12 districts are working together to help new teachers succeed in the 21st-century classroom.

The New Generation of Educators Initiative (NGEI) began in 2014 with several CSU campuses and a K-12 partner. Their experiences and contributions formed the foundation for the Initiative approach.

Today, 11 partnerships are in place.

Each partnership is focused on goals and strategies that fit its local context.  Our partners are:

  • Enriching or expanding teacher residency programs
  • Creating pathways for candidates to gain relevant experience and join the K-8 teaching faculty in districts facing teacher shortages
  • Ensuring that candidates have meaningful co-teaching experiences
  • Developing curricula that integrates STEM into K-8 learning and teacher preparation
