REN Process

The Columbia REN is teacher driven and led. Our process starts small, and uses an inquiry cycle that prioritizes learning and growth before scaling up.

The CREN coordinating body, an advisory team of local educators, communities, students, and families, will work together to apply a continuous process of improvement to:

  • Identify and understand the root causes of problems of practice.

  • Redesign and transform systems that impact equity, support novice educators, and encourage career long professional learning.

  • Connect resources and district initiatives at a regional level creating a network.

  • Leverage resources within the region and state.

  • Elevate equity and center educator voice in decision making.
