The California Collaborative for Educational Excellence (CCEE) is a statewide agency designed to help deliver on California’s promise of a quality, equitable education for every student.
CCEE does this by working collaboratively with other state agencies, partner agencies, county offices of education (COEs), and stakeholders to address the most pressing needs of California’s local educational agencies (LEAs).
