Attached is the presentation that was used at the 16th District PTA Meeting on April 19, 2017. The purpose of the presentation was to provide information on the Local Control and Accountability Plan, the role of the county office of education in the process and to provide some insight into the new accountability system in California.
California School Dashboard - An Integrated Accountability System
Rather than developing two accountability systems––one that meets state requirements (LCFF) and another that meets federal requirements (ESSA)––a new integrated local, state, and federal accountability and continuous improvement system founded on the LCFF priority areas and also aligned to ESSA requirements has been developed.
This new system, based on multiple measures, will use the California School Dashboard (hereafter referred to as the Dashboard), which includes state and local performance standards for all LCFF priorities, to report progress. These performance standards will be used to support LEAs in identifying strengths, weaknesses, and areas for improvement; to assist in determining whether LEAs are eligible for assistance; and to assist the State Superintendent of Public Instruction in determining whether LEAs are eligible for more intensive state support/intervention.
See below for further details on the components of the new accountability system.
