Statewide System of School Support

NOTE: The application due date for this program has passed.

The Regional System of District and School Support (RSDSS) is a component of California's Statewide System of School Support (S4), which was established to meet state and federal requirements for a support system that would increase the opportunity for all students to meet academic content and achievement standards.The statewide system consists of regional consortia, which may include county offices of education and school districts, aligned to the 11 regions established by the California County Superintendents Educational Services Association (CCSESA). Funding supports one RSDSS office per region. Initially the grant was to be a two year cycle (2006-07 and 2007-08); however, the program received a one-time one year extension providing funding for a third year in 2008-09.
