Regional Partner Advisory Committee


As the Regional Partner program continues to mature and expand, will look to our partners for leadership and advice through multiple channels and structures that best serve to advance the program and our partners.


The advisory committee is a valuable resource for to understand our partners’ needs and to tailor our models accordingly. Regional Partners are carrying on the teacher recruitment, professional learning, and district management work that began, and as such, they are now the power users of tools and processes and are best suited to offer valuable feedback and input. While there are numerous avenues for all partners to provide feedback, make suggestions, and share ideas such as regional managers, ongoing feedback surveys, and at Partner Summits, the advisory committee provides a formal structure for ongoing communication with a representative group of Regional Partners. benefits from hearing feedback, advice and receiving guidance on the direction of the program.

The advisory committee is also a forum to connect peers across the Regional Partner network to share resources and successes, discuss ideas, and connect and learn from each other. Committee members serve a 2- or 3-year term and represent a broad range of partners from all Groups, institutional types, and geographic locations. New committee members are nominated by staff in collaboration with the current advisory committee. If you are interested in serving on the committee in the future, have questions, or would like to learn more, please email the Chair(s) to express your interest.
