Sac State, Sac City Unified awarded $900,000 to train teachers

Sac State leads CSUs in sustainability Sacramento State’s role in providing the region with top educators has received a major boost in the form of a $900,000 grant from the S.D. Bechtel Jr. Foundation to work with Sacramento City Unified School District on expanding training for new K-8 teachers in implementing the state’s math and science standards.

The grant represents a continuation of the long history of Sacramento State-SCUSD collaboration, which includes professional development for middle school math and science teachers, as well as STEM-focused elementary school teachers and Linked Learning Pathways at select SCUSD high schools. In addition, more than 30 percent of Sacramento State‘s credential candidates complete their clinical practice through SCUSD campus-district partnerships.

“Our long- and short-term goal is to prepare highly qualified teachers for schools throughout the region, but especially for Sacramento City Unified School District,” said Sacramento State President Robert S. Nelsen. “Together we make formidable partners.”
