Plan Changes

How does a district submit a request to change its TLC plan?

School districts wishing to amend their TLC Plan should submit changes using the TLC Plan Change Request Form. A separate form should be filled out and submitted for each change being requested. Districts are asked to describe the change, the rationale for the change, and the level of support for the change. Support documents that don't fit within the form (e.g., budget spreadsheets) should be emailed to Lora Rasey at Also available, a document TLC Plan Change Request Template.

When do districts need to submit a change request?
If the paper TLC plan and enacted TLC plan no longer align a change request needs to be submitted to account for that difference. In other words, if someone were walking through your district with your TLC plan in their hands would what is on the paper align to what they see? If not, a change request needs to be submitted. Additionally, any changes made to Part 8 of the grant including measures used to monitor the impact/effectiveness of the TLC plan this will need to be submitted.

What changes have districts made?
The following two documents lists change requests and outcomes that have been made by districts. The documents are updated periodically to reflect changes.

TLC District Profiles

District Profiles are a way to share the great Teacher Leadership work happening in districts across the state. The goal is to enable others to learn what's happening across the state, share ideas, answer persistent questions and, most important, help districts reflect on TLC implementation and ensure continuous improvement.

Use the District Profile Submission form to submit a district profile for consideration.
