Description

Common ​Core ​Implementation ​and ​LCFF ​- ​CISI ​Spring ​2014 ​Workshops ​- ​Fresno ​COE ​

California ​Institute ​for ​School ​Improvement ​(CISI) ​Fall ​2014 ​Workshop ​Details

California ​public ​schools ​will ​undergo ​the ​most ​significant ​and ​historic ​changes ​seen ​in ​decades ​with ​the ​implementation ​of ​both ​the ​Common ​Core ​State ​Standards ​and ​an ​entirely ​new ​school ​funding ​system. ​While ​these ​major ​issues ​will ​dominate ​our ​discussion ​at ​this ​year's ​fall ​CISI ​workshops, ​there ​are ​a ​number ​of ​interconnected ​parts ​and ​politics ​that ​every ​school ​leader ​should ​know. ​In ​addition ​to ​a ​close ​examination ​of ​LCFF ​and ​the ​direction ​the ​State ​is ​likely ​to ​take ​on ​the ​Local ​Control ​Accountability ​Plan, ​we ​will ​dig ​deeply ​into ​the ​challenges ​and ​opportunities ​of ​implementing ​the ​common ​core ​standards, ​moving ​to ​a ​new ​assessment ​system ​and ​ultimately ​a ​new ​system ​of ​school ​accountability. ​

The ​CISI ​workshops ​are ​designed ​to ​pull ​these ​various ​issues ​together ​in ​a ​review ​of ​the ​“Top ​Ten ​issues ​in ​Education,” ​that ​will ​help ​local ​educators ​anticipate ​state ​and ​federal ​policies ​and ​plan ​more ​effectively ​for ​the ​year ​ahead.

The ​Center ​for ​Applied ​Policy ​in ​Education ​has ​partnered ​with ​Capitol ​Advisors ​Group's ​excellent ​staff ​to ​present ​the ​CISI ​Fall ​Briefing ​Workshops. ​Presenters ​will ​include ​Jack ​O'Connell, ​former ​CA ​Superintendent ​of ​Public ​Instruction, ​Kevin ​Gordon, ​Gerry ​Shelton ​and ​Barrett ​Snider, ​all ​partners ​in ​Capitol ​Advisors ​Group. ​

The ​workshops ​are ​designed ​to ​pull ​these ​various ​issues ​together ​in ​a ​review ​of ​the ​“Top ​Ten ​issues ​in ​Eeducation,” ​that ​will ​help ​local ​educators ​anticipate ​state ​and ​federal ​policies ​and ​plan ​more ​effectively ​for ​the ​year ​ahead. ​The ​Top ​Ten ​issues ​for ​2013-14 ​include:

1) ​ ​ ​Common ​Core ​implementation
2) ​ ​ ​State ​Budget
3) ​ ​ ​Local ​Control ​Funding ​Formula ​(LCFF)
4) ​ ​ ​Local ​Control ​Accountability ​Plans ​(LCAPs)
5) ​ ​ ​EL/Low ​income/foster ​students
6) ​ ​ ​Assessments
7) ​ ​ ​Federal ​and ​state ​accountability
8) ​ ​ ​Instructional ​materials
9) ​ ​ ​Bargaining ​implications
10) ​Teacher ​evaluation

CISI ​supports ​school ​district, ​county ​offices ​of ​education ​and ​instructional ​leaders ​across ​the ​state ​with ​a ​focus ​on ​instructional ​improvement. ​CISI ​helps ​local ​leaders ​stay ​focused ​on ​the ​critical ​issues ​and ​provides ​the ​information ​they ​need, ​providing ​integrated ​analysis ​across ​funding, ​instruction ​and ​political ​perspectives. ​District ​superintendents, ​school ​principals, ​business ​officials ​and ​human ​resources ​leaders ​appreciate ​our ​timely ​and ​accurate ​policy ​updates.

CISI ​provides ​an ​impartial ​and ​knowledgeable ​perspective ​on ​policy ​developments ​in ​Sacramento ​as ​they ​apply ​to ​the ​real ​work ​of ​school ​districts ​and ​county ​offices ​of ​education.
