The Southeast Comprehensive Center (SECC) will assist the Alabama State Department of Education (ALSDE) as it implements multiple metric educator evaluation systems that meet federal Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) requirements.
The SECC will facilitate meetings with state education agency (SEA) staff from across the agency and members of the Alabama Professional Learning Committee (APLC) to look at professional learning being provided to districts and schools and to devise a cohesive framework for providing professional learning opportunities to educators in the state. The SECC will share resources and expertise with the department and APLC that support the design of evidenced-based professional learning and evaluation of services.
- Intra- and inter-organization consensus (within and between the SEA and the APLC) on framework of statewide system of professional learning for educators in districts and schools
- Cohesive SEA framework for providing professional learning support to districts and schools (improved organizational structures and processes)
- Increased SEA capacity for monitoring the effective implementation of the statewide system of support
- Improved organizational structures and processes
