Regional System of District and School Support

​​​​The Regional System of District and School Support of Region 9 provides leadership, resources, and technical assistance to the schools, districts, and county offices of San Diego, Orange and Imperial counties in order to increase their collective capacity to support students in meeting or exceeding the state's academic content standards.

No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act of 2001 requires each state to establish a statewide system of intensive and sustained support and improvement for local education agencies and schools receiving Title I funding to increase opportunities for all students to meet state academic content and achievement standards. As a result, the Regional System of District and School Support was established, and partners with the California Department of Education (CDE), the Comprehensive Assistance Center, and county offices of education to form the Statewide System of School Support and satisfy the requirements of NCLB.

From Evidence into Action in Support of Student Learning​: Schools who sent teams to the Visible Learning Conference held on Dec. 10-12 and Feb. 26-27 experienced crucial learning around the importance of making learning “Visible.” By the last day of the conference, participants expressed a desire to spend more ti​​me studying the theory and practical application of key concepts of Visible Learning, such as, Learning Intentions/Success Criteria, Feedback, and the full development of their Evidence Into Action Plan. In response to this request, the District & School Improvement team, working through the Regional System of District and School Support grant, is offering additional sessions to explore this work in further depth. Original Visible Learning Conference teams as well as other staff members they invite who are willing to help make learning visible in their school are invited to attend. Please click on the title in red for a flyer with ​information about dates and times.
