California Poets in the Schools (CalPoets) is working to clarify and better support Poet-Teachers working under the umbrella of our organization, throughout the state. Our mission and strategic plan explicitly call for a transition to a professional development membership organization with a focus on the network of Poet-Teachers and the students they teach. If you are not familiar with our mission and vision, you can refer to them here.

This year, we require that each active Poet-Teacher “recertify” with the organization. Our intention is to better understand who comprises our network, and what we can do to better support you. If you are using the CalPoets’ name, logo, contracts, website, etc. while you are teaching in schools, you are probably an active Poet-Teacher, and this form is for you! If you are currently in training, or otherwise inactive, but intend to become active during the 2023-24 school year, please fill out the form. If you are an area coordinator, please fill out the form. 

Recertification is completed through submittable. We estimate that the process will take 20-60 minutes to complete this form, depending upon your role within the organization, and whether you opt in or out of some questions. If you do not submit the recertification form, then you will not be considered an active Poet-Teacher with the organization, and will not gain access to the benefits provided to active Poet-Teachers.  

The deadline for recertification is June 30th, 2023.
