The Central Valley Science Project aspires to build a professional learning community that promotes science achievement for all students through providing high quality professional development and leadership experiences for teachers. This aspiration is built upon a set of core beliefs: (1) effective science teachers are competent in science content, are capable of delivering standards-based content to diverse groups of students through sound pedagogical strategies, and are willing and able to assume leadership roles within the discipline, (2) science is for ALL students; consequently gender, status, cultural and linguistic equity issues are integral components of all site programs, (3) science learners, whether teachers or students, gain conceptual understanding and develop investigation skills through actively "doing" science, and (4) teacher leaders are a key factor in improving science achievement.
