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 Accountability Plans (“LCAPs”). (Ed. Code § 52074.) CCEE is an integral part of California’s State System of Support, which is designed to build the capacity of LEAs to support the continuous improvement of pupil performance, address the achievement gaps between pupil subgroups, and improve outreach and collaboration with stakeholders to ensure that LCAPs reflect the needs of pupils and the community, especially for historically underrepresented or low-achieving populations (Ed. Code § 52059), the CCEE’s responsibilities have been updated to support this work.

The CCEE is requesting proposals for external evaluation services to provide both formative and summative evaluations of the activities conducted as a part of the 21st Century California School Leadership Academy (21CSLA) initiative within the Statewide System of Support.

The 21CSLA initiative was established by Senate Bill 75, Section 26 Statutes of 2019, which added Article 5 (commencing with Section 44690) to Chapter 3.1 of part 25 of Division 3 of Title II of the California Education Code (Click Here for Link).
