Resources for LEAs in PI Years 1-3

Local educational agencies (LEAs) in Program Improvement (PI) should reference the resources listed below to fully implement the federal and state requirements to which they are subject.

The State Board of Education (SBE) and the California Department of Education (CDE) are working collectively to seek relief from the current federal implementation requirements that are believed no longer useful in identifying which schools and LEAs need improvement or appropriate intervention. However, until the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) is reauthorized, all LEAs receiving Title I, Title II, and Title III funds must adhere to the current federal requirements.

Timeline for Requirements for PI LEAs Three-year chart outlining requirements for PI LEAs.

Guidance and documents for LEAs in PI Year 1 are available on the Year 1 Program Improvement Requirements for LEAs Web page.

Corrective Action

An LEA that advances to PI Year 3 is subject to Corrective Action, and the SBE is required to select and impose at least one of seven federal corrective actions, cited at Education Code (EC) Section 52055.57(c).

Note: Announcement and links of corrective action, Cohort 7

See Agenda Item 11, which establishes Corrective Action 7, on the CDE SBE Agenda for November 2013 Web page [], and Agenda Item 9, which assigns the corrective action to LEAs in PI Year 3, Cohort 7, on the CDE SBE Agenda for January 2014 Web page []. This serves as the notification to parents and the public of the corrective action the state has taken, in accordance with 20 U.S.C. 6316 §1116(c)(10)(E) and CFR § 200.51 (d)(3).

Technical Assistance Requirements

Under ESEA, Section 1116(c)(10)(B)(iii), states are required to provide technical assistance while instituting any corrective action. The assignment of technical assistance requirements is based upon LEA need.

DAIT or other Technical Assistance Provider Standards and Criteria (DOC)
In September 2009, the SBE adopted revised standards for the work of a DAIT or other technical assistance provider. The full State Board of Education item, including Attachment 1 (Revised Standards for District Improvement and the Focus of Work of a District Assistance and Intervention Team) and Attachment 2 (Matrix Comparing Standards Adopted in 2006 and Proposed Standards for District Improvement and the Focus of Work of a District Assistance and Intervention Team) is available electronically at the above link.
