The California Standards Technical Assistance Network (CalSTAN) is comprised of technical assistance and professional development organizations committed to improving their capacity to deliver high-quality resources that support the implementation of the California State Standards within schools and districts, ultimately improving outcomes for our state’s students.

Collective Impact

A Collective Impact approach sits at the heart of CalSTAN’s work. Collective Impact is a framework designed to tackle complex and entrenched challenges through structured collaboration across organizations and stakeholders who share a common mission and focus on a common agenda.

The Five Elements of Collective Impact Are:

  • Common Agenda
  • Shared Measurement
  • Mutually Reinforcing Activities
  • Continuous Communication
  • Backbone Organization

CalSTAN’s Common Agenda is to:

  • Build systemic coherence across California to support English Language Development
  • Develop provider quality standards that inform CalSTAN marketing tools and help districts identify external partners

Member Organization Representatives

CalSTAN is comprised of 13 not-for-profit organizations, institutions of higher education and CA county offices of education all working to build greater capacity for standards implementation.
