Areas of  

Focus

Direct Technical Assistance

The CCEE advises and assists county offices of education (COEs) and local educational agencies (LEAs) in need of targeted assistance in achieving their Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) goals by effectively meeting the needs of disadvantaged youth. An important part of our work is teaming with COEs and other expert resources to build the capacity of individual LEAs through Direct Technical Assistance (DTA).

Systemic Instructional Review (SIR)

The Systemic Instructional Review (SIR) is a Pre-K to 12 instructional comprehensive assessment (academic and social emotional) of a local educational agency’s (LEA) strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats to effective instructional systems that successfully meet the needs of all learners. In collaboration with the LEA, their county office of education (COE), and other partner agencies, the CCEE will provide support to the LEA to further strengthen members in order to sustain the work needed for systemic changes.

Reports and Updates

These reports detail the collaborative work the TLLC team is doing with school districts and county offices of education.

Facilitated Instructional Review

Local educational agencies engage in a fee-for-service partnership with CCEE through Education Code 52074(g)(3) to assess instructional systems and pupil achievement and engage in a series of continuous improvement activities.

Learning Acceleration System Grant

The CCEE partners with selected county offices of education to establish a statewide professional development infrastructure to expand the use of evidence-based accelerated learning strategies by educators across the state, particularly in the areas of literacy, mathematics, and language development.

Independent Study Professional Learning Network (ISPLN)

Districts have had to choose between traditional independent study and course-based independent study to create quality short- and long-term remote instruction models that best serve the needs of their students. The purpose of these one-hour Independent Study Professional Learning Network (ISPLN) meetings is to focus on a problem of practice around independent study, to learn from one another, share best practices, and to be problem-solving oriented.
