Direct Technical Assistance Pathways

Primary DTA Pathway

ACCESSING DTA THROUGH THE CALIFORNIA SYSTEM OF SUPPORT

The LEA should first consult and work with its county office of education (COE). The CCEE may also establish contact with the COE.

The COE will consider the request and may confer with the regional Geographic Lead Agency (Geo Lead) in determining the right kind of support.

If the COE and Geo Lead agree the advice and assistance from the CCEE is necessary, then our agency can engage with and consider offering direct technical assistance to the LEA at no cost.

EDUCATION CODE 52074

If the county superintendent of schools of the county in which the school district or charter school is located determines, following the provision of technical assistance pursuant to Section 52071 or 47607.3, as applicable, and the geographic lead agency of that county identified pursuant to Section 52073 agrees, that the advice and assistance of the California Collaborative for Educational Excellence is necessary to help the school district or charter school accomplish the goals described in the local control and accountability plan adopted pursuant to this article.

Special Circumstances Pathway

Only in a few cases can an LEA become automatically eligible for CCEE Direct Technical Assistance:

Wraparound Support

Under AB 1840, a Local Educational Agency (LEA) can automatically be referred to the CCEE for Wraparound Support if the LEA is receiving an emergency apportionment (state loan) because it is fiscally insolvent.

Education Code 52074(g)(2)(A): If a school district receives an emergency apportionment pursuant to Article 2 (commencing with Section 41320) of Chapter 3 of Part 24 of Division 3, the school district shall be deemed to have been referred to the California Collaborative for Educational Excellence.

Fee for Service

An LEA can access CCEE’s DTA services for a fee. CCEE provides support through its Modes of Engagement.

Education Code 52074(g)(3): A school district, county office of education, or charter school that requests the advice and assistance of the California Collaborative for Educational Excellence shall reimburse the California Collaborative for Educational Excellence for the cost of those services pursuant to authority provided in the annual Budget Act.

State Superintendent of Public Instruction (SPI)

Education Code 52074(g)(1)(B): If the Superintendent determines that the advice and assistance of the California Collaborative for Educational Excellence is necessary to help the school district, county superintendent of schools, or charter school accomplish the goals set forth in the local control and accountability plan adopted pursuant to this article.

Continuum of Support

The Continuum of Support also referred to as SIR+ Support, falls within California‚Äôs System of Support. Education Code 52072(b)(1) states that if a school district meets the criteria established pursuant to subdivision (g) of Section 52064.5 (CA School Dashboard) whereby three or more pupil subgroups identified pursuant to Section 52052 did not make progress based on the CA School Dashboard they are eligible for this support from CCEE.
