We wanted to take an opportunity to highlight some upcoming events that may be of interest to you: 

  • CalSAAS Kick Off on October 15: CalSAAS is a new state-wide system that will use data from the CTC and the CDE to identify potential educator missassignments. SCOE Credentials, ESS, and IT staff will provide a brief overview of CalSAAS during the this Kick-Off; however, the focus of this meeting will be unveiling a three-phase action plan that will be implemented to ensure Sonoma County LEAs are supported and prepared for this mandatory change. Curriculum staff, secondary master schedulers, CALPADS administrators, human resources staff, and credentialing staff are all highly encouraged to attend the Kick-Off meeting. To learn more or register for this event, please click here

Redesign of Curriculum Council: Improvement Collaborative

Date: 09/23/2019
Author:

After discussions with many of you as well as our internal team, we are offering the newly redesigned Improvement Collaborative (formerly Curriculum Council).

The purpose of the Sonoma County Office of Education’s Improvement Collaborative is to accelerate improvements focused on building capacity and improving curriculum, instruction, assessment, data analysis, and reciprocal accountability to effectively address inequities in student opportunities and outcomes.   

This year our through-line focus will be a deep dive into critical components of the LCAP and how these components are operationalized in our systems to support student outcomes.
