California Collaborative for Educational Excellence (CCEE)

About the CCEE

The California Collaborative for Educational Excellence (CCEE) is a new and different kind of statewide agency designed to help deliver on California’s promise of a quality, equitable education for every student.

Our agency does this by working collaboratively with other state agencies, partner agencies, county offices of education (COEs), and stakeholders so we — as a collective group — can tackle challenges as a team.

Designed to “advise and assist,” we do not carry out compliance or accountability functions. Rather, we serve as strategic thought partners working alongside educators to listen, identify goals and needs, promote innovative thinking, and jointly solve problems.

We serve a critical role in strengthening and growing California’s innovative System of Support, a component of the state’s new school accountability system whose guiding principles include local control and continuous improvement.

We also offer specialized services to COEs and Local Educational Agencies (LEAs) including:

The CCEE is staffed by a team of accomplished and experienced educators, researchers and facilitators who are passionate about assuring each and every student in California receive a high-quality education.
