System Improvement Leads
The purpose of the SELPA System Improvement Lead Project is to work collaboratively within the Statewide System of Support to build the capacity of Special Education Local Plan Areas (SELPAs) and Local Education Agencies (LEAs) with a common goal to improve outcomes for students with disabilities.
It is the belief of the SELPA System Improvement Lead partners that:
If partnerships are built between SELPAs, LEAs, County Offices of Education (COEs), Statewide Leads Agencies, California Department of Education (CDE), and California Collaborative for Educational Excellence (CCEE) and the capacity of SELPAs is built to support LEAs in 1) data use and governance, 2) continuous improvement, and 3) implementation of high leverage practices; then students with disabilities will have access to cohesive and effective school systems intentionally designed to provide the necessary supports and interventions for educational and post-secondary success.
The SELPA System Improvement Lead project has been designed to achieve improved outcomes for students with disabilities throughout California by:
- Building the capacity of SELPAs to support LEAs in data use and governance
- Building the capacity of SELPAs to support LEAs in building a culture of continuous improvement
- Building the capacity of SELPAs to support LEAs in participating in resource networks and the implementation of high leverage practices
