About Community Training and Assistance Center (CTAC)
The Community Training and Assistance Center (CTAC) has a thirty-eight year record of success in urban communities. CTAC provides technical assistance to school systems, state departments of education, and community-based organizations to improve education, health, and community and neighborhood revitalization in cities and states throughout the country. There are three primary components to this support: on-site technical assistance, research and evaluation services, and public policy support.
CTAC’s education-related activities focus on the systemic reform of urban school districts serving diverse and at-risk populations. CTAC’s core education initiatives focus on (1) helping districts to conduct and learn from intensive analyses of disaggregated student achievement data, (2) building the capacity at school sites to analyze the conditions that help or hinder student achievement, find their causes, and create and implement improvement plans which address those causes, and (3) helping districts to manage strategically based on the needs and priorities identified at the individual school sites. The Center's Education Division also conducts assessments and provides assistance to state and district-wide initiatives, such as state interventions in underperforming school districts. CTAC’s methodologies include using growth models to evaluate the impact of reforms on student achievement. CTAC is a nationally recognized leader in providing technical assistance to states, districts and unions to link teacher performance to student growth, develop performance-based compensation initiatives, implement educator evaluation systems, and support school and district turnaround efforts.
