Members from Washington Unified T he Instructional Leadership Corps (ILC) is mov- ing into its second year with a bang, with two successful events in September. At the first, 80-plus ILC supporters met at CTA head- quarters in Burlingame at its Second Annual Convening. The crowd included teachers, chapter presidents, principals and superintendents, and was welcomed by CTA President Eric Heins. Because of ILC, "for the first time I'm hearing about teachers being taught by teachers, and that's really exciting," Heins told them. "ILC is on the leading edge in making implementation of the California standards work for our students." ILC is a collaborative effort of CTA, the Stan- ford Center for Opportunity Policy in Education (SCOPE), and the National Board Resource Center at Stanford University. It is in the second year of a three-year project to build a statewide network of accomplished teachers and other education lead- ers who support implementation of the California Common Core State Standards (CCSS) in English language arts and mathematics, and the Next Gener- ation Science Standards (NGSS).
