CSTP: The Impact of Changes to the California Standards for the Teaching Profession

The California Standards for the Teaching Profession (CSTP) were jointly developed by the Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CCTC) and the California Department of Education (CDE). These standards, which set forth the expectations for current classroom teachers, were adopted by the Commission and approved by the Superintendent of Public Instruction in October 2009.

 

The CSTPs are intended to provide a common language and vision about the complexity of the profession by which all teachers can define and develop their practice. The standards seek to serve and support professional educators in fulfilling their professional roles and responsibilities from pre-service teacher to experienced practitioner. The standards are not set forth as regulations to control the specific actions of teachers, but rather to guide teachers as they develop, refine, and extend their practice.

 

The CSTP have been used for a variety of purposes, including the following:

  • to prompt reflection about student learning and teaching practice;
  • to formulate professional goals to improve teaching practice in support of student learning; and
  • to guide, monitor, and assess the progress of a teacher’s practice toward professional goals

 

Some school districts are creating an evaluation rubric for teachers based on the CSTPs. Here is a sample rubric developed by the El Rancho USD in collaboration with the union that is based on the CSTPs.

 

In a separate effort, the New Teacher Center out of UC Santa Cruz (UCSC) has developed the Continuum of Teacher Development rubric that is aligned with the CSTPs. The rubric describes five stages of development for teacher practice and knowledge. The rubric was developed for teachers to locate descriptors that best define their current classroom practice, and continue to reference the Continuum for self-reflections, assessment, and professional goal setting.

 

Below are materials from an IPD presentation on CSTP.
