Essential Program Components (EPCs)--Improvement
School District is currently in Year 3+ of program improvement. As part of the
program improvement process, the district was required to use the District
Assistance Survey (DAS) which is a state tool designed to guide districts and
their technical assistance providers in assessing the nature and alignment of
district operations and the district’s capacity to support a rigorous and
multi-tiered instructional system at all schools and for all students. This tool
was used in developing our Local Educational Agency Plan (LEAP) which is posted
on the district's front webpage.
As part of the improvement process, all schools
reviewed and monitored their programs based on the Essential Program Components
(EPC) that support academic student achievement in English/reading/language arts
and mathematics as measured through grade-span Academic Program Surveys (APS).
The EPCs are designed to meet the needs of all students through State Board of
Education (SBE)-adopted and standards-aligned instructional materials including
interventions, appropriate instructional time and pacing schedules, professional
development for teachers and administrators, assignment of fully credentialed
highly qualified teachers, use of data obtained from a student achievement
monitoring system, instructional support, teacher collaboration, and fiscal
support. Detailed descriptions of the EPCs are: http://www.cde.ca.gov/ta/ac/ti/essentialcomp.asp
Academic Program Survey
This survey is the first step a school and district take in
assessing the school's status with respect to the nine Essential Program
Components that support academic achievement in reading/English-language arts
and mathematics. The survey document gives a description of what the full
implementation of each component might look like. The Academic Program Survey is
grade-span specific, being tailored to the elementary, middle, and high school
Learner Subgroup Self Assessment (ELSSA)
The English Learner
Subgroup Self Assessment tool will help LEAs to analyze and revise their LEA
Plan in order to improve outcomes for their English learners.
Inventory of Services and Supports (ISS) for Students with
The Inventory of Services and Supports for Students with Disabilities
(SWDs) is designed to help districts examine their policies, procedures, and
practices to gain a deeper understanding of SWDs learning needs. The tool is
designed to provide a framework for the District Leadership Team to use that
will enhance and deepen their understandings about this student group.
