Service and Leadership for Student Achievement

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.
