California EPFP focuses on connecting people across four quadrants: K-12, postsecondary education, policy, and practice. We bring approximately 20 professionals together over the course of an academic year to explore and collaborate around the complex challenges our public education systems face. By supporting growth in individuals and cohorts over time, the program aims to contribute to improved policy development and implementation that leads to more equitable student outcomes in California within and across education systems. The program is jointly administered by the Education Insights Center and the Center for California Studies and is financially supported by the State of California and generous grants from The Rosalinde and Arthur Gilbert Foundation, The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, and College Futures Foundation.
