Funding Description

The Regional System of District and School Support (RSDSS) was established to meet state and federal requirements for a statewide system of school support. The system consists of regional consortia, which may include county offices of education (COEs) and school districts, aligned to the 11 regions established by the California County Superintendents Educational Services Association (CCSESA).

The regional consortia work collaboratively with identified Program Improvement (PI) districts and schools, as well as schools that are participating in the state’s accountability system.
