Posting Date: 9/22/23


Established by the Legislature in 2013 with the enactment of the Local Control Funding Formula (“LCFF”), the CCEE became operational in 2015 to “advise and assist” local educational agencies (“LEAs”) with achieving the goals set forth in their Local Control and Accountability Plans (“LCAPs”). (Ed. Code § 52074.) CCEE is an integral part of the Statewide System of Support, which is designed to build the capacity of LEAs to support LCFF, through the continuous improvement of pupil performance, address the achievement gaps between student groups, and improve outreach and collaboration with partners to ensure that LCAPs reflect the needs of pupils and the community, especially for historically underrepresented or low-achieving populations (Ed. Code § 52059).

The purpose of CCEE’s Direct Technical Assistance (“DTA”) is to “advise and assist” 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 students historically underserved. The DTA process utilizes school/district turnaround principles and quality improvement practices to effectively build the capacity of LEAs to support all students’ academic and social-emotional well-being. When CCEE provides this assistance to an LEA, their teams collaborate with external partners and professional content experts to create a culture of continuous improvement that addresses systemic barriers to teaching and learning.

In 2019, the statute outlining the CCEE’s mission (Ed. Code § 52074) was updated to designate school districts that receive emergency apportionments pursuant to specified provisions as being referred to CCEE, after which CCEE may conduct a systemic review of the district. CCEE may further coordinate and facilitate assistance to the district provided by governmental agencies in order to facilitate and provide coherent support.

CCEE also provides technical assistance to school districts that meet specified student performance criteria over a period of three out of four consecutive school years.

CCEE is looking for respondents who can support the partner LEAs in implementing State priorities. Further Information is included in the Request for proposal.
