Thank you for your many fine efforts in launching the CLASS Project. It is so exciting to engage with you in these important conversations about enhancing career opportunities for educators...."Empowering educators to raise student achievement." We appreciate the creative and thoughtful work of each design team. In preparation for our October 28th CLASS meeting we are attaching a form for you to record your district's CLASS design principles. We would appreciate it very much if you would finalize your CLASS design principles in this format and bring copies with you to the CLASS meeting. We would like to share your design principles with the other CLASS districts. If you could bring 30 copies to distribute we will have enough to share with each participating district.
