Region 2


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 2 plays an integral role to deliver 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 achieve higher levels of academic achievement in accordance with the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act of 2001.

Regional Demographics

Region 2 consists of the nine northeastern counties which include: Modoc, Siskiyou, Lassen, Shasta, Trinity, Tehama, Plumas, Glenn, and Butte. Region 2 is mostly rural; the two largest population centers are in Butte (Chico) and Shasta (Redding) counties. Traditionally, these nine counties work closely together in their support of districts and schools through a collaborative governance structure known as the North Eastern Regional Curriculum Committee (NERCC). All regional programs regularly report to NERCC on their service to priority schools and districts and the progress they make in achieving NERCC goals. Region 2 is a keystone to the NERCC Work Plan for Region 2 and to NERCC collaborative efforts with other regional programs for service to districts and schools.
