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 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 involves the development of an aligned LCFF Content Library for use in local LCFF trainings. The CCEE will again be accepting submissions of proposed content to the Library in the next few months. Whenever possible, each submission to the Library is reviewed by at least one peer review team comprised of representatives from county offices of education, statewide educations associations, and/or non-profit and/or advocacy organizations. If you are interested in joining one of these peer review teams, there will be a training and orientation on May 22-23 in Sacramento. Anyone interested in attending should email Siulan Morales (email@example.com) for more information. The CCEE will reimburse travel and lodging costs for attendees.
Component III consists of two types of support networks designed to operate like professional learning communities. The first type of 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. The Request for Letters of Interest to host PLNs for 2017-18 and 2018-19 has been published here. The deadline to submit Letters of Interest is Monday, May 15, 2017. Questions should be directed to Josh Daniels at 510-842-5227 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
