Geographic Lead Agency SystemThe Geographic Lead Agency System is part of the California Statewide System of Support.
Assembly Bill 1808 appropriated $4 million to establish the California Geographic Lead Agency (Lead Agency) System to build the capacity of county offices of education (COEs) to ensure that counties are equipped to build the capacity of their local educational agencies (LEAs) to support the continuous improvement of student performance within the state priorities as defined in California Education Code (EC) sections 52060 and 52066 and address the gaps in achievement between student groups as defined in EC Section 52052.
The 6 to 10 Lead Agencies will work together to support the following goals for all counties. The Lead Agencies will also connect COEs to the other initiatives within the California Statewide System of Support.
Support the continuous improvement of student performance within the state priorities across student groups as defined in EC sections 52060 and 52066.
Address the gaps in achievement between student groups as defined in EC Section 52052.
Improve outreach and collaboration with stakeholders to ensure that goals, actions, and services as described in school district and COEs Local Control and Accountability Plans reflect the needs of the community, especially for historically under-represented or low-achieving populations.
- Serve as a facilitator, resource connector, and capacity builder for COEs.
Each Lead Agency is selected for a term ending no later than June 30, 2023. Each awardee will receive a minimum of $250,000 and additional funds will be allocated based on a formula derived from the 2018 list of school districts eligible for differentiated assistance.
