Francisco Escobido

 “Successful schools aim to improve the quality of everyday instruction, so all students are more likely to succeed and fewer are likely to need referral for Tier II and Tier III support. This series of workshops provides California schools FREE resources that help them improve student engagement and success school-wide. What a great way to engage a team of educators in reimagining teaching and learning!” 

Dr. Francisco Escobedo, Executive Director of the National Center for Urban School Transformation & Former Superintendent of the Chula Vista Elementary School District
