Since late 2010, the TLE-SA CoP has regularly convened multi-sector Race to the Top State teams to explore issues such as:
- Assessments for measuring growth in non-tested grades and subjects.
- Collaborative problem solving and direction setting around cross-State procurement.
- Effective implementation of teacher and leader effectiveness measures within the context of new standards.
In December 2012, the TLE-SA CoP organized a seminar on "Addressing Communications Challenges: Strategies for States to Effectively Communicate with Educators about Evaluation" in Providence, Rhode Island.

The TLE-SA CoP is also sponsoring a series of one day “seminars” to engage States in an in-depth discussion on reform implementation. The first seminar brought States together in Nashville, Tennessee and gave grantees an up close and personal look at the successes and challenges in Tennessee’s first year implementation of the Tennessee Educator Acceleration Model (TEAM).
