Program Self-Evaluations

Information, forms, and instructions for contractors completing Program Self-Evaluations.

Due: June 1, 2017

Contractors are required to analyze findings from the self-evaluation and develop both a written list of tasks to modify the program for all areas needing improvement and procedures for ongoing monitoring to assure that areas that are satisfactory continue to meet standards.

Also, contractors are required to submit a Summary of Findings of the Program Self-Evaluation (PSE) to the California Department of Education (CDE) by June 1 of every year. Forms EESD 4000A and EESD 4000B are provided for use in fulfilling the submission requirement for the PSE. Included below are the instructions for completing forms EESD 4000A and EESD 4000B, as well as additional resource materials.

Additional details concerning possible PSE webinars will be e-mailed to all contractors later.
