History of NCPDF
NCPDF was begun as a partnership of the College of Education, the San Diego County Office of Education and five North County 
school districts. A dues structure was established to provide basic operating support, so that pursuit of grants could be for the
purpose of providing programs, not core support. The Steering Committee was established to guide the planning efforts for the 
Federation, and from the beginning a strong focus of all our collaborative work was cross-district cooperation and meaningful 
university involvement in on-going professional development. The success of the organization is evident in its continued growth and 
viability, as a mechanism for supporting our schools in meeting the learning needs of all students.

Beginning in 1992 NCPDF was organized in partnership with the San Diego County Office of Education (SDCOE), California State 
University San Marcos, and 4 school districts in northern San Diego County. Since 1992, this organization has increased to 24 school 
districts located in northern San Diego and southern Riverside counties Alice Quiocho, first NCPDF Director, Steve Lilly, Dean of
Education at CSUSM, and Carol Pugmire, Assistant Superintendent LRET at SDCOE formed the first Executive Committee.

NCPDF's goal is to maximize and share resources to improve curriculum and instruction through staff development using a process of 
collaborative articulation, assessment and evaluation.
