The 21CSLA Universal Transitional Kindergarten Leadership Initiative is designed to prepare leaders to "lead for equity" in rolling out California's groundbreaking transitional kindergarten for all four year-olds.

Leaders can access more than 60 hours of content on topics such as developmentally-appropriate instruction, socio-emotional development, inclusive practices for English Language Learners and bilingual students, recruiting and retaining highlight trained and qualified teachers who reflect the community, home/family engagement, and integration across preschool through third grade. This no-cost professional learning program is the result of comprehensive research from specialists across the state; the initiative is in partnership with the 21st Century California School Leadership Academy, the California Subject Matter Project, UC Berkeley Graduate School of Education, UCLA Graduate School of Education and Information Studies, UCLA Center X, and seven regional academies statewide.
