Technical Assistance (TA)
For the past 10 years, CalSTAT has utilized federally allocated grant funds to support training and technical assistance to the field of education. Through collaborative efforts, CalSTAT brings research-based training to schools, families, and organizations. Hundreds of technical assistance training days have been delivered to 1600 school sites in 56 of California’s 58 counties to approximately 45,000 participants to date.
Technical Assistance is defined as customized problem solving around a specific situation or issue toward achieving improved educational results. TA approaches are used specific to the outcomes desired and can include in-person or virtual training and/or coaching, or site-visits. Topics must fall within one of the nine CalSTAT Core Message Areas.
Those seeking Technical Assistance from CalSTAT should also read about our Leadership Community in which high performing sites are awarded for their collaborative research-based work in a variety of Core Message Areas. Leadership Sites are excellent resources that can provide Technical Assistance upon request.
CalSTAT currently has Technical Assistance available for schools, districts, COEs and SELPAs and parent organizations. Those seeking information about CalSTAT technical assistance should follow these two basic steps:
