Differentiated Assistance

Differentiated Assistance

California has made a series of major shifts in public education with one goal: To improve learning so every student can be successful in school, college, work, and life. Our state is raising the bar and setting high expectations for all students; empowering parents, students, and school communities; and changing the way it evaluates and supports schools. Using more than just a single number or test score, the state’s new accountability system aims to confront the gaps for student groups that can be hidden within student averages.

The Statewide System of Support identifies Differentiated Assistance as an opportunity provided to eligible local education agencies (LEAs) that have been shown in the California School Dashboard to need attention in two or more Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) priority areas for a student group. The priorities are represented with indicators on the Dashboard. The state's priorities for education include pupil achievement (math and English test scores, English learner progress); school climate (suspension rates); and pupil engagement (graduation rates, chronic absenteeism).

Continuous Improvement is centered around school districts. This includes: California School Dashboard, Differentiated Assistance, developing resources and support for students, community input and stakeholder engagement, LCAP, and implementing resources and supports for students.
