Fifth year since the membership cards were redesigned.
79% of the candidates endorsed via the hard work of our VPs and regions were elected

Our board interviewed statewide candidates, and every candidate we endorsed won their election.

We were the only education group in the state to oppose Prop. 2. We also partnered with CASBO to sponsor a bill to repeal cap language in Prop. 2.

ACSA & CSBA have a contract for federal advocacy

Provided training to strengthen the advocacy skills of our Delegate Assembly, Committees, Councils and Regions at the local, state and federal level
We will be the premier provider of an array of compelling learning experiences dedicated to developing the capacity of all educational leaders
Over 200 Districts are using LCAPca to plan their Local Accountability
Create the new state adopted template
Allow users to manage multiple users on your LCAP planning
Allow users to submit your LCAP electronically to your county
Allow users to save goals to the system by deactivating them
Increased security parameters

New Principal Acculturation and Onboarding Guide
will be released in the Fall for 2016-17 school year

The purpose of the guide is to assist districts in providing support guidance to their new principals in their first year. The guide will assist them in learning the important aspects of the district's culture, history, and core procedures and initiatives.

An effort to include a more personal element into the current new member onboarding/orientation program is expected to launch by summer.

Lead Ambassadors have been identified for most regions. Anyone interested in becoming the Lead Ambassador should contact Director of Member Services Margarita Cuizon for information. Training for all new Lead Ambassadors will take place at the end of July in Ontario.

The Value of Membership

Membership totals currently rest at
Keep those new members coming!

ACSA 101 – the Member Services effort to build capacity and establish combined student/associate charters across the state is in full swing. Member Services is providing seed money of $500 towards kick off events for regions who have been asked to pilot the program and have identified Student/Associate Charter coordinators for each pilot region. Pilot regions are Regions 6, 8, 11, 13, 14, 15, 16 & 17. To date, two of the 7 pilot regions have gotten a charter off the ground.

We will cultivate transformational technologies in all aspects of our work
We will change our organization from its present structure to constantly evolving formations.
We will dedicate our budget, resources and assets to the accomplishment of our mission and objectives.

Provide relevant equity leadership training and support for ACSA leaders and members that focus on building capacity in cultural proficiency.

ACSA’s Educational Equity Definition

“Educational equity provides students access to resources and opportunities based on their individual need to achieve high quality educational outcomes” -

ACSAtv offers online and electronic
delivery for some of our most popular
professional development program.

EdCal Relaunch
ACSA's Communications Department has developed a strategy that creates a larger social media community and stronger online presence.
ACSA app
to better connect
and support our members. This year we
added region buttons so our regions can
stay better connected and informed.
Incorporate more technology in ACSA academies, workshops and conferences.

ACSA will launch an online Learning Management System (LMS). The LMS will be available Fall 2015.

We implemented electronic/barcode registrations at several of our largest events this year.
A Governance Task Force will determine an organizational structure that can operationalize the Strategic Plan.
Working with CTC
State and Federal leaders turn to ACSA for opinions and advice on educational matters.

Influence and participation in CTC’s accreditation streamlining and simplifying process in
the areas of educator effectiveness. Accomplished ACSA members contributed to CTC’s six credentialing Task Forces on the Accreditation Advisory Panel.

ACSA has established a mentoring program to go along with our comprehensive slate of quality services for all of our members. ACSA strongly believes in this support service to assist new superintendents as they build their own capacity to lead. ACSA will provide a mentor to new superintendents as part of their ACSA membership.

In phase two, December 2015, the mentoring program will be available to all administrators.

A Multiple Measures Approach

1) Be designed to produce continuous system improvement, not just test scores;

2) Be reciprocal , with each level of the system taking responsibility for the contributions it must make to serve each child well;

3) Focus on meaningful learning for college, careers, and citizenship, using more valid and authentic assessments

4) Ensure adequate resources allocated intelligently to meet student needs well;

5) Develop and ensure professional capacity and accountability

6) Use multiple measures evaluated through systems of expert review, judgment, and intervention

7) Focus on system capacity building, shifting from a test-and-rank approach to an assess-support-and-improve model

8) Reflect ongoing student, parent, educator and community input; provide transparent and accessible information to the public.

Accountability Should…

Move from a single index to a dashboard of indicators

Align state reporting and oversight with LCAP priorities (e.g. SARC, on-line data tools, identification of schools for intervention)

Organizing and Reporting Information for Improvement

Key Elements of a New Accountability System
State Budget Update
Prop 98 shows enormous growth by a total of $6.1 billion over 3 years:
$241 million in 2013/14
$3.1 billion in 2014/15
$2.7 million in 2015/16

Increases bring Prop 98 guarantee levels for those fiscal years to:
$58.9 billion in 2013/14
$66.3 billion in 2014/15
$68.4 billion in 2015/16

Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CTC)
The CTC claims that reports from school districts are too often incomplete
AG concurs and charges the CTC for the cost of investigation
Superintendents face a penalty for failing to report to local law enforcement any
alleged misconduct
ACSA proposes:
development of emergency regulations
strengthen reporting of certificated employee misconduct
clarify definitions - misconduct, change in employment status, "pending" as related to misconduct
update current CTC forms
develop clear guidelines and protocols
stipulate guidelines that information need not be submitted that violates state and federal student & employee privacy laws
develop penalty for non-credentialed admin who deliberately fail to report
develop process for superintendent to make a good-faith effort
first issue notice before non-compliance is deemed unprofessional conduct

What Role for the California Collaborative for
Educational Excellence (CCEE)?
Has a $10 million budget

Not intended to be about compliance and punitive intervention

What does broker assistance look like?

ACSA will have a model for assistance!

Educator Effectiveness Block Grant
The 2015 Budget Act included $500 million in one-time money
to be used over three years
A school district can use the allocation of funding from the block grant for any of the following:

Beginning Teacher and Administrator Support
Coach and Support for Improvement
Standards Based Professional Development
Promoting Quality and Effectiveness
Mentoring and coaching certificated staff and training certificated staff to support effective teaching and learning

Funding Allocation

The funding is required to be allocated by the State SPI:
In an equal amount based on the
certificated staff
in the 2014-15 fiscal year.
Currently, the CDE and the DOF are collaborating to determine which certificated staff is eligible for resources.
At this time it is unclear whether "certificated staff" is defined exclusively as teachers and administrators or whether it includes other staff that also hold credentials.
Each district can expect between $1,300-$1,500 per certificated employee.

Outlook for Political Climate 2015-16
Substantial new revenues in state budget
Great budget for public education
Social program advocates pushing hard
Liberal leadership in both houses
72 of 120 legislators have less than 2 years of policy experience
Moderate to conservative governor wins again
November 2016 elections play role in 2015 cycle
