Region 4


The Regional System of District and School Support (RSDSS) is a part of the statewide system of school support that was established to meet state and federal requirements. The support system, working within county offices of education (COEs), offers intensive and sustained assistance to local educational agencies (LEAs) and schools receiving Title I funds to increase the opportunity for all students to meet the state’s academic content standards. California uses a regional approach to address the needs of students because of the vast number of schools and districts in the state. This support system delivers and brokers resources to districts and schools in need of improvement.

The mission of Region 4 is to provide leadership, resources, and assistance to schools and districts in order to increase their capacity to provide opportunities for all students to meet and/or exceed state and local content and performance standards.

Purpose of Work

Region 4 plays an integral role in delivering support to LEAs assisting schools subject to corrective action; LEAs with schools identified as in need of improvement; and to other LEAs and schools that need support to reach higher levels of academic achievement in accordance with the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act of 2001.
