2015 Report of California's Statewide Task Force


The Statewide Task Force was formed to examine California's complex systems for serving students with disabilities and forward recommendations to the State Board of Education, the Commission on Teacher Credentialing, and the California Department of Education for consideration. The content appearing on the following web pages was originally published in March 2015 as One System: Reforming Education to Serve ALL Students, Report of California's Statewide Task Force on Special Education. The report outlines how to improve outcomes and services at the local, state, and federal levels.

More information can be found on the Task Force project summary webpage.

Published in October 2021, California’s Progress Toward Achieving ONE SYSTEM: Reforming Education to Serve ALL Students (PDF) acts as a supplementary document detailing the policy and system changes impacting students with disabilities since the 2015 Report of California’s Statewide Task Force on Special Education.
