Region 10

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.

Purpose of Work  

Region 10 provides leadership, resources, and assistance to schools and districts receiving Title I funds to move all students to proficiency in state standards and to close the achievement gap. Region 10 emphasizes services for Program Improvement (PI) districts and schools.

Regional Demographics  

Region 10 consists of four counties located in southern and eastern California:  Mono, Inyo, San Bernardino, and Riverside.

The two southern counties: San Bernardino and Riverside, feature a wider variety of district demographics, but mostly larger, more urban and suburban districts with large percentages of Hispanic students and English learners. The southern counties also have a slightly higher percentage of students on free and reduced-price meals than the northern counties.
