  • LAUSD Launches Fifth Year of Micro-Credentialing With Expanded Offerings To Enhance Educator Excellence At Our District's Highest and High Needs Schools

    Posted by MICHAEL BEIERSDORF on 8/24/2022

    Los Angeles Unified launched its Micro-Credentialing Program in 2018 to cultivate and recognize educator excellence across the District. In support of Pillar 5 of the 2022-2026 Strategic Plan, Investing in Staff, we are excited to continue and expand this rigorous professional-learning opportunity.

    Micro-Credential offerings continuing for the 2022-2023 school year include:

    • Cohort five of the STEAM Micro-Credential
    • Cohort four of the TK-12 English Learner Micro-Credential
    • Cohort three of the Reading Specialist: Early Literacy Foundations Micro-Credential
    • Cohort three of the Dual Language Education Micro-Credential

    Additionally, two new expansion Micro-Credentials will launch in the 2022-2023 school year:

    • Cohort one of the Early Childhood Micro-Credential
    • Cohort one of the Equitable Grading and Instruction (EGI) Micro-Credential

    Recruitment efforts are focused on educators from our District’s “highest” and “high” needs schools according to the Student Equity Needs Index (SENI). This focus will help achieve the goals set forth within Pillar 5B of the Strategic Plan as well as our School Board’s 2018 resolution, “Realizing the Promise for All: Close the Gap by 2023.” Additionally, we are hopeful that teams of educators from each participating school join a Program together.
