In order for California to eliminate the requirement of Supplemental Educational Services (SES) and Choice for local educational agencies (LEAs) for the 2016 - 17 school year, an assurance letter had to be submitted to the U.S. Department of Education (ED) in addition to developing a Transition Plan.
