We Partner with Geographic
Lead Agencies

Within the System of Support, there are seven Geographic Lead areas housed within nine county offices of education (COEs). The nine Geographic Lead Regions are:

Geo Leads build the capacity of other COEs in their area, coordinate and calibrate Differentiated Assistance across their area, provide Differentiated Assistance to a school district if its own COE is unable to, and identify existing resources and develop new resources in response to emerging needs.

The CCEE serves the needs of Geo Leads so they can better support educators in the field. We also facilitate and enable communication among the Geo Leads to ensure coherence and consistency within the state’s public school system.

The CCEE, in consultation with the CDE, supports the Geo Leads in fulfilling their responsibilities.

Theory of Action

In collaboration with the state agencies, RTI International, as the external evaluation partner for the System of Support worked with the geographical lead agencies (Geo Leads) to develop a theory of action for their work within California’s Statewide System of Support.
