California Collaborative for Educational Excellence (CCEE)

Workshops & Trainings

The California Legislature has allocated $20 million of one-time funding to the CCEE to establish a plan to provide professional development training to county offices of education, school districts, and charter schools regarding the use of the LCFF Evaluation Rubrics and the LCAP Template. The plan has four components.

Component I

Component I consists of workshops held across the state with the intent of providing a common foundation for interpreting, understanding, and using the LCFF Evaluation Rubrics and the LCAP Template.

Fall 2016 Workshops
The first set of workshops took place in November 2016. These Local Control & Continuous Improvement workshops focused on helping attendees interpret, understand, and use the new LCFF Evaluation Rubrics as a tool to support continuous improvement for all students.

Spring 2017 Workshops
The second set of workshops will take place in March and early April, 2017. These workshops are focused on the relationship between the California School Dashboard (formerly known as the LCFF Evaluation Rubrics) and the Local Control & Accountability Plan (LCAP) Template.

Component II

Component II involves the development of an aligned LCFF Content Library for use in local LCFF trainings. The CCEE is now accepting the submission of proposed content for the Library. Please submit as much content as possible with the only parameter being that the content is appropriate to use in a training on some aspect of Local Control. By submitting proposed content, ownership of the content stays with the owner and creation of the content will be attributed to the owner. Additionally, by submitting proposed content the owner agrees that it can be used by others in trainings if it is included in the Library and that the owner will not be compensated financially regardless of whether it is included in the Library. To submit content, please click here or email it to ContentLibrary@ccee-ca.org. The deadline for the submission of initial content is Tuesday, November 22, 2016.

Component II also involves regular Collaborative Content Development meetings where attendees and CCEE staff will work together to review and revise proposed Library content and create new content if necessary. The CCEE will then approve content for the Library based on the feedback at the meeting and after additional input from stakeholders. The CCEE's first Collaborative Content Development meeting is scheduled for December 6-7 in Oakland, CA. Anyone interested in attending should email Siulan Morales (smorales@ccee-ca.org) for more information. The CCEE will reimburse travel and lodging costs for attendees.

Component III

Component III consists of two tiers of support networks designed to operate like professional learning communities. The first-tier networks, called Professional Learning Networks (“PLNs”), are run by COEs as well as statewide associations and non-profit organizations. The focus of the PLNs is on using the LCFF Evaluation Rubrics and the LCAP Template as tools to support continuous improvement, although many PLNs may narrow this focus further to a specific state priority or a specific student group such as English learners. The CCEE Governing Board approved 28 Early Adopter PLNs to operate January 2017 through June 2017.

The RFP for PLNs in 2017-18 and beyond will be forthcoming.

Component IV

Component IV is an LCFF Support Desk created to provide responses to certain inquiries that may arise at the local level regarding the LCFF Evaluation Rubrics and the LCAP Template. The Support Desk will respond to substantive inquiries regarding the use of the LCFF Evaluation Rubrics and the LCAP Template as tools for continuous improvement but not to any other inquiry such as compliance, policies, or technical inquiries and will not be established to respond to urgent inquiries.

The Support Desk will start taking and responding to inquired in January 2017.
