Spring 2017 LCAP Academy (Southern CA)

Evergreen AssociatesNPO Solutions, and Bolton & Company have joined forces to present the Spring 2017 LCAP Academy. 
 
The Academy will provide guidance and training in the required update of your school's LCAP with an emphasis on an authentic, continuous improvement process aligned with charter renewal, rather than one driven by compliance alone. The Academy will cover new changes affecting how your school's LCAP is reviewed and monitored, as well as the latest changes in State accountability. 
 
A cohort of charter school leaders will meet three times over the year to:
  • Understand how to lead school improvement in a changing accountability landscape
  • Identify and use data to focus school improvement effort
  • Assess relevant achievement gaps and prioritize actions to close them over time
  • Align improvement strategies, actions, and resource allocation with goals and measureable outcomes
  • Engage stakeholders in understanding the LCAP and its implications, as well as their role in providing feedback
  • Develop systems for ongoing evaluation and monitoring in a cycle of continuous improvement
  • Complete your LCAP
Who Should Participate in the LCAP Academy?
Charter school leaders who are responsible for school improvement and accountability. We encourage charter schools bring a team of 2-3 individuals, such as Principal, Teacher Leader, Board Member, etc.
The LCAP Academy is a three-day institute that meets in January, March, and May 2017. Ideally, participants attend all three sessions, however, school teams may elect to participate a-la-carte based on their individual needs. 

January 31, 2017, 8:30 am to 4 pm
  • LCAP basics: purpose and requirements 
  • California's changing assessment and accountability system 
  • How to conduct a school needs assessment linked to the LCAP Priority Areas
March 3, 2017, 8:30 am to 4 pm
  • Identifying school-wide vs. subgroup needs
  • Formulating goals with measurable outcomes and annual targets
  • Grouping action steps under strategies to aid implementation
  • Engaging your school's stakeholders
May 18, 2017, 8:30 am to 4 pm
  • Linking resource allocation to strategies and actions
  • Assigning staff to strategies and actions
  • Ensuring LCAP accountability - monitoring and formative evaluation
Location
The Eli and Edythe Broad Foundation
* $2,250 for all three sessions (up to three participants per school)
* $800 for a-la-carte sessions (up to three participants per school)
REGISTER
What is LCAP and is there a deadline for having one in place?
 
The State of California has approved a new accountability system for charter schools that is informed by data, relevant to each school community, and aligned with the school's charter petition and improvement efforts. Created by charter school leaders and their teams, the Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) replaces a single number or ranking with a multiple measures based on eight priority areas. It must be approved by the charter school governing board prior to submission to the school's County Office of Education (COE) and ultimately to the California Department of Education.  LCAP is a three-year plan, due on July 1st and requires annual updates. Alternatively, a school can resubmit a LCAP in any year as long as it is approved by its governing board.
 
Is there a penalty for NOT adhering to the LCAP?

Failure to submit or update a LCAP invites scrutiny from a charter school's authorizer, the school's COE, and almost certainly invites the   
(CCEE) 
 
to get involved.  Under the State's new "color-coded" accountability system, schools could be subject to greater oversight for any of the following: 
  • Low achievement
  • Declining achievement
  • Substantial achievement gaps for subgroups of 30 or more

There are 4 CALPADS listservs (who knew!)

There are four unique listservs that disseminate info about CALPADS.  One is maintained by CSIS/FCMAT and serves as a Q & A forum for day-to-day users.  The other three are "one-way" messaging systems and do not accept replies.  A list of these and their intended audiences and access instructions is below:

"CALPADS" listservs Intended Audience Access Instructions 

1.  "CSIS-LS"

Lot's of back-and-forth messages from CALPADS Coordinators

Individuals who work on a daily basis with all aspects of the system, including preparing data for upload, working with various SIS systems, resolving errors, and validating/verifying data.  The group is open to all local school district CALPADS administrators and usually has around 200 active participants.  This is a lively back-and-forth discussion forum with roughly 25 to 50 email messages going back and forth each day.  It is advisable to use a secondary email account just for this listserv or to create some rules within your email filter to sort these messages into their own folder.  https://csis.fcmat.org/Pages/Listserv.aspx

2.  "CALPADS-LEA"

Only official information

According to the CDE website, "The CALPADS-LEA listserv is a private listserv restricted to LEAs. All requests for membership will be reviewed before approval is granted."  This is one of the official channels in which "Flash" updates from CDE regarding CALPADS is disseminated.  Generally anyone who is the LEA CALPADS Coordinator should be on this list to receive deadline information, product improvement updates, known issues updates, and new data requirement updates.  

(Note to CDE - Since this is official information already posted on the CDE site, and not priviliged info in any way, it might make sense to open access of this list up a bit too!  That way we can assign a unique email address to it (e.g. ) and then route this critically important info to all necessary parties at our schools.
http://www.cde.ca.gov/ds/sp/cl/listservs.asp

3.  "CALPADS-SIS-VENDORS"

Only official information

"The CALPADS-SIS-VENDORS listserv provides information relevant to the development and implementation of CALPADS to Student Information System (SIS) vendors and LEAs utilizing custom-designed SISs. This listserv is an open listserv with no membership restrictions." This listserv provides an opportunity to understand how changes in the CALPADS system may impact your student information system (e.g. Aeries, PowerSchool, Infinite Campus, Illuminate SIS, and others).  There is usually a monthly vendor conference call as well, that is usually attended by representatives of those companies (when it hasn't been cancelled).  

http://www.cde.ca.gov/ds/sp/cl/listservs.asp

4.  "CASEMIS-TO-CALPADS"

Only official information

"The CASEMIS-TO-CALPADS listserv disseminates information to LEAs regarding the transition from the California Special Education Management Information System (CASEMIS) to CALPADS. This listserv is an open listserv with no membership restrictions. "  Since the CASEMIS data is scheduled to "morph" into CALPADS at some point in the 2019-2020 time-frame, it would make sense for Special Education leaders and CALPADS Coordinators to participate in this listserv in order to anticipate these changes in how SPed data is captured, stored, and reported. http://www.cde.ca.gov/ds/sp/cl/listservs.asp

Edsby platform moves to Microsoft Azure Cloud

ONTARIO, Canada  – Edsby®, a SaaS platform that gives K-12 school districts, regions and national governments better student, teacher and parent engagement, improved educational outcomes and new insight into educational effectiveness, is now running on Microsoft Azure, Microsoft’s hyperscale, enterprise-grade cloud platform, as part of a global relationship between the two companies.

K-12 education organizations usually have strict data sovereignty requirements that require them to store their academic data in the country/region they operate. Edsby is now leveraging Microsoft’s investment in Azure data centers worldwide to meet these requirements for customers around the globe. This is especially attractive for large school districts along with state, provincial and national educational organizations.

In addition, the move to Azure provides Edsby with unprecedented scalability and performance that can be flexibly and cost effectively tuned to meet demand as use of Edsby grows in regions around the world. From a management perspective, Azure makes it possible to manage all Edsby global deployments from a single console.

“We’ve benefited from a number of key Azure technologies in moving from our bare metal architecture to Azure, including Azure SQL Database for high availability data management, Azure Storage for durable tiered storage, Azure Portal and more,” said Steven Asbury, Edsby Co-Founder and Vice President of Engineering. “The software porting and customer data migration took just a few months, and we are now recognizing many benefits, such as improved performance, scalability-on-demand, more flexible storage, back-end monitoring/analytics, a better high availability and disaster recovery offering and other efficiencies.”

Edsby’s migration to Azure builds on earlier integration work by Edsby with Microsoft technologies, including support for Microsoft Azure Active Directory, which enables convenient one-click authentication, Microsoft OneDrive access for Edsby users using Office 365 and upcoming support for integrations between Edsby and OneNote Class Notebook. In addition, work is underway to embed Azure Power BI into the Edsby analytics offering.

“Edsby is enhancing how students, teachers and parents communicate and collaborate while leveraging the power of the Microsoft Cloud,” said Anthony Salcito, Vice President of Worldwide Education, Microsoft. “We look forward to working with Edsby to bring this solution to schools around the world.”

Survey results are in!

The results are in!  The survey's have been tabulated!  A huge thank you to the more than 150 districts who updated their enterprise systems this year in our 2nd annual EXPANDED survey.  We've combined the results from the first and second surveys into a single searchable online index. We think this is currently the most accurate and complete list of systems in use by California K-12 public school districts. 

And there's still time to update YOUR district's list of enterprise systems if you didn't get a chance to do so yet.  The online survey will stay open until the end of the school year and we'll update the list continuously throughout the year.

Elementary Principals Handbook

Just got my hands on the updated ACSA Elementary Principal's Handbook.  What a fantastic resource!  Even if you are not a principal, but working in a California school as an office manager, CALPADS administrator, program director, etc., this is a resource for you! This revised comprehensive resource for elementary principals offers a wealth of best practices in 300 pages of content PLUS more than 600 additional sample documents, forms and letters available for download.

In addition, if you purchase the binder you get a usb drive along with it that contains literally hundreds of templated forms that you can repurpose for your own needs.  I found the information on Williams Law requirements, SSC by-laws, ELL compliance, dress code, and parent letters especially helpful.  The document does need to be updated to include the new state testing processes, since it still mentions the STAR test, among other things.  But the need for minor updates aside, this is a great resource that should be on all of our bookshelves.

 The link to their online bookstore (remember to get the $45 version with the usb drive!) is here:  http://shop.acsa.org/publications/elementary-handbook/new-elementary-handbook-binder.html

EVERY STUDENT SUCCEEDS ACT – Update #5

EVERY STUDENT SUCCEEDS ACT – Update #5

The purpose of this letter is to update you on California’s transition to the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). The new federal law provides states with more flexibility to design accountability and systems of support that will align with current California reforms, such as the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) and Local Control and Accountability Plans (LCAPs). In this letter, we will provide information about ESSA regulations, the California ESSA State Plan, and ESSA guidance from the U.S. Department of Education (ED).

ESSA Regulations

ESSA regulations are developed by ED to provide clarity to state educational agencies (SEAs) and local educational agencies (LEAs) for implementing the statute. ED has released and collected public comment on three sets of ESSA regulations:

  • Accountability, Data Reporting, and Submission of State Plans
  • Assessment and Innovative Assessment Pilots
  • Supplement Not Supplant

I have submitted responses to each set of regulations in joint letters with State Board of Education (SBE) President Michael Kirst detailing concerns about the proposed regulations and making recommendations to address those concerns. You may review those letters and the proposed regulations on the California Department of Education (CDE) ESSA Web page at http://www.cde.ca.gov/essa. ED has indicated that it plans to address public comment and finalize the regulations by the end of this year. Once the regulations are finalized, the CDE will inform LEAs of the potential impact on California’s implementation of ESSA programs. We are also tracking the transition to a new federal administration and will notify LEAs if this will have an effect on ESSA implementation.

California ESSA Consolidated State Plan

As part of California’s transition to ESSA, California must submit an ESSA State Plan to ED. The State Plan will describe the State’s implementation of standards, assessment, accountability, and assistance programs and will move us toward California’s goal of having a single, coherent local, state, and federal education system. California has elected to submit a consolidated State Plan, which will address several ESSA programs in a coherent and integrated way.

California will not be able to finalize its State Plan until final regulations are available. However, there are many State Plan components that are not contingent upon regulations. Therefore, the CDE is moving forward with the development of the State Plan to ensure stakeholders have sufficient time and opportunity to inform the State Plan, regardless of the status of regulations.

The CDE intends to steadily develop, and make available for public comment, three successive drafts of the plan over the next several months with new plan sections added to the document as new information becomes available.

The first draft of the ESSA Consolidated State Plan was presented to the SBE at its November meeting and is now available for public comment on the CDE Web site at http://www.cde.ca.gov/re/es/toolkit2.asp. To help facilitate local conversations regarding the plan, the CDE has developed the ESSA Stakeholder Engagement Toolkit available on the CDE Web site at http://www.cde.ca.gov/re/es/toolkit.asp. On this Web site you will find the State Plan Development Timeline, overview materials to familiarize stakeholders with the ESSA and State Plan requirements, and a link to the Phase II Toolkit. The Phase II toolkit includes the first draft sections with accompanying overview videos and a link to the public comment survey for stakeholders to provide input on the draft sections. It also includes facilitator instructions to support local stakeholder engagement activities. The public comment survey for the first draft sections opened on November 10, 2016, and will close on December 2, 2016.

CDE staff will provide a live webinar to preview the first draft sections and the engagement toolkit on Thursday, November 17, at 1 p.m. To register for this event, please visit the Webinar Registration Web page at http://bit.ly/2fQCjq6. This webinar will be recorded and archived.

I encourage you to participate in and promote this public comment opportunity and help inform the development of California’s ESSA Consolidated State Plan. We will continue to share information about opportunities to participate in the State Plan development process as more information becomes available.

ESSA Non-regulatory Guidance

The ESSA presents SEAs and LEAs with opportunities to better formulate programs and initiatives to address our biggest challenges: narrowing the achievement and opportunity gap for our students and improving outcomes across the educational spectrum. The recent non-regulatory guidance released by ED, listed below, provides support to LEAs and schools regarding implementation of the ESSA, from expanding early childhood education to better address the needs of foster and homeless children, to strategically leveraging federal funding to better serve all students.

Even though the ESSA will not take full effect until 2017–18, it is important to begin planning for implementation now. We encourage you to review the guidance documents below as you consider ESSA implementation at the local level and as you consider providing public comment on California’s ESSA State Plan.

ESSA Title IV, Part A Non-regulatory Guidance – Student Support and Academic Enrichment Program (October 2016) available at http://www2.ed.gov/policy/elsec/leg/essa/essassaegrantguid10212016.pdf
This guidance outlines how Title IV funds can be leveraged to ensure that students receive a high-quality, well-rounded education. The program activities and allowable uses of funds fall under three categories: well-rounded educational opportunities, safe and healthy students, and effective use of technology.

  • ESSA Early Learning Non-regulatory Guidance – Expanding Opportunities to Support our Youngest Learners (October 2016) available at http://www2.ed.gov/policy/elsec/leg/essa/essaelguidance10202016.pdf
    This guidance explains how to leverage federal funds and programs to expand access to high-quality early learning. It provides real-world examples of how SEAs and LEAs are building successful early education programs. The document addresses the allowable uses of funds under Titles I–III and encourages support for professional development for early childhood educators, alignment between early learning programs and K–12 education systems, and capacity building.
  • ESSA Title I, Part A Non-regulatory Guidance – Supporting School Reform by Leveraging Federal Funds in School Wide Programs (September 2016) available at http://www2.ed.gov/policy/elsec/leg/essa/essaswpguidance9192016.pdf
    This guidance encourages schools to consider consolidating their federal, state, and local funds to gain flexibility and serve all students by operating schoolwide programs. ED outlines the required components for implementation of schoolwide programs, lists allowable uses of funds, and addresses common misunderstandings regarding Title I funding in a schoolwide program.
  • ESSA Title II, Part A Non-regulatory Guidance – Building Systems of Support for Excellent Teaching and Leading (October 2016) available at http://www2.ed.gov/policy/elsec/leg/essa/essatitleiipartaguidance.pdf
    This guidance seeks to support SEAs and LEAs to use Title II, Part A funds more strategically and for greater impact. It clarifies and explains new opportunities and highlights allowable uses of funds, which include developing multiple pathways to teaching, induction and mentorship programs, meaningful evaluation and support systems, and strong leadership development for teachers and school leadership. This guidance also outlines ways to address teacher equity, expand access to effective educators, and retain high-quality teachers in
    high-needs schools.
  • ESSA Title III Programs Non-regulatory Guidance – English Learners and Title 3 (September 2016) available at http://www2.ed.gov/policy/elsec/leg/essa/essatitleiiiguidenglishlearners92016.pdf
    This guidance was designed to support SEAs, LEAs, and schools in thinking through how to best address the opportunity and academic achievement gaps that English learners face. It describes ESSA requirements as well as opportunities to leverage supplemental funds to preserve and build effective language instruction education programs; provide support and professional development to teachers and principals to improve instruction; improve parent, family, and community engagement; promote early learning programs; and support enhanced educational opportunities for immigrant children and youth.
  • ESSA Evidence Non-regulatory Guidance – Using Evidence to Strengthen Educational Investments (September 2016) available at http://www2.ed.gov/policy/elsec/leg/essa/guidanceuseseinvestment.pdf
    No Child Left Behind called for the use of scientifically-based research as the foundation for educational programs and classroom instruction. The ESSA requires that LEAs and schools implement evidence-based measures, particularly in the context of considering interventions that they fund under Titles I–IV. This guidance outlines a framework for evidence-based measures and defines four tiers of evidence: strong evidence, moderate evidence, promising evidence, and practices that demonstrate a rationale.
  • Title VII McKinney-Vento Non-regulatory Guidance – Education for Homeless Children and Youths Program (July 2016) available at http://www2.ed.gov/policy/elsec/leg/essa/160240ehcyguidance072716.pdf
    This guidance reviews the new and amended requirements under the
    McKinney-Vento Act as reauthorized by the ESSA. These changes are focused on identification of homeless children and youth, pre-school aged homeless children, collaboration and coordination with other service providers, professional development and technical assistance, removing enrollment barriers, improving school stability, maintaining privacy of student records, and effectively implementing the dispute resolution process.
  • Ensuring Educational Stability for Children in Foster Care Non-regulatory Guidance (June 2016) available at http://www2.ed.gov/policy/elsec/leg/essa/edhhsfostercarenonregulatorguide.pdf
    Children and youth in foster care represent one of the most vulnerable student subgroups in the country and the ESSA seeks to address their unique needs. The provisions under the ESSA complement the Fostering Connections Act and require SEAs and LEAs to work with child welfare agencies to ensure educational stability for children in foster care. The guidance also provides “spotlights from the field” for SEAs and LEAs to consider in their planning and implementation.

The CDE is committed to providing schools and districts, stakeholders, and members of the public clear and timely communication regarding our state’s transition to ESSA. You can find more information and resources from the CDE and ED on the CDE ESSA Web page available at http://www.cde.ca.gov/essa. I encourage you to join the CDE ESSA listserv to receive e-mail notifications when new information becomes available. To join, please send a blank e-mail message to .

Guidance on CASEMIS Data Transition

 

October 25, 2016

Dear County and District Superintendents and Charter School Administrators:

Consistent with the State Superintendent’s Blueprint for Great Schools 2.0, the California Department of Education (CDE) continues to streamline the collection of data and increase its quality to facilitate data-driven decision-making in support of continuous improvement at both the state and local levels. The next major step in this ongoing effort is the transition of the California Special Education Management Information System (CASEMIS) data collection into the California Longitudinal Pupil Achievement Data System (CALPADS). The one-time work associated with this transition will translate into ongoing benefits that include reduced data-related workload and increased data quality. Perhaps most importantly, this integration of data will also support programmatic efforts to include students with disabilities (students with individualized education plans or service plans) to a greater extent in the general education environment.

The success of this important effort depends on strong collaboration between the CDE, the Special Education Local Plan Areas (SELPAs), local educational agencies (LEAs), and student information system (SIS) and special education system (SES) vendors. It will be especially critical for local CALPADS and special education staff to receive support to work closely together during and following the transition.

The CDE has developed a high level timeline that includes a test phase in 2018–19 and full implementation in 2019–20. A more detailed timeline is attached. While full implementation is in the future, it is important that LEAs begin now to modify existing business processes to ensure integrity between data maintained by local SIS and SES.

The CDE has already begun discussions with SELPAs and SES vendors, and will begin to reach out to LEA-level special education and CALPADS staff. Please forward this information to key special education staff and CALPADS LEA administrators. Project updates will be provided primarily through the CASEMIS to CALPADS (C2C) Listserv. Information on how to subscribe to the C2C Listserv can be found on the CDE CALPADS Listservs Web page at http://www.cde.ca.gov/ds/sp/cl/listservs.asp. 

 

For more information, please contact Shiyloh Duncan-Becerril, Administrator, Special Education Division, by phone at 916-327-3547 or by email at ; or Karen Almquist, Administrator, CALPADS/CBEDS/CDS Operations Office, by phone at 916-319-0529 or by email at

PowerSchool acquires Chalkable

PowerSchool today announced it had acquired Chalkable, a provider of student achievement and regional education data management solutions. The acquisition brings positive behavior intervention and classroom culture into the PowerSchool 'Unified Classroom' Solution to further empower teachers and improve school culture by teaching students' social skills that contribute to good character and a positive classroom environment. "We believe adding PowerSchool's Unified Classroom to current Chalkable solutions will help their teachers more effectively instruct, assess, evaluate, and improve learning outcomes for their students" said Powerschool CEO Hardeep Gulati.

This is the sixth major software company to be acquired by PowerSchool in the last year. In August, PowerSchool purchased SRB Education Solutions, which provides business management software to school districts in Canada and the U.S. In June, PowerSchool acquired the LMS company Haiku Learning. Its technology allows PowerSchool to offer online content, such as other companies' websites, in a controlled environment. In April, it bought Tienet from Maximus, used to manage special education programs.

Cooking with CALPADS: Fun with Extracts

There are 9 types of CALPADS Extract files:

cooking_calpads_300.png

1.  ODS Extracts

2.  SSID Extract

3.  Candidate List Extract

4.  Replacement SSID Extract

5.   Rejected Records Extract

6.  Direct Certification Extract

7.  Assessment - Student Results Extract New!

8.  Assessment - Individual Student Results Extract New!

9.  Suspense Resolution Records

 

 

Type #1 - "Operational Data Store or 'O.D.S.' extract" 

Generating an ODS extract is useful if you want to compare the data in CALPADS to what is in your own SIS system.  Since an ODS extract pulls out the "live" data, you can match what is in CALPADS to your own data to make sure you have enrolled or exited all of the students correctly, to identify students who might be participating in a program, determine the EL status, etc.

There are 13 different types of ODS extract files.  They are virtually identical to the files used to upload data to the calpads system from your student information system, with three differences: the ODS Extract file is structured like the input file with the addition of two fields, (A) the upload date and (B) the last date updated, at the end of each record. Additionally, the (C) Record Type Code will have a ‘-R’ appended to the Input Record Type Code.

Type #2 - "SSID extract"

An LEA may request an extract of their "State Student Identifier Number" or "SSID" information from the CALPADS portal. CALPADS will create the extract file according to the user’s specified selection criteria. The SSIDs in the file may be imported into a local student information system and/or used locally on the user’s personal computing system.

The file will contain a list of SSIDs and limited demographics based on the selected filter criteria defined by the LEA. CALPADS will extract ONLY THE SSIDs associated with the students currently enrolled in the LEA. The content of the SSID Extract file is listed in the table below.

SSID Enrollment Candidate List Response

The following sections describe the process and file layout associated with the offline resolution of the Candidate List. This process will allow an LEA to resolve the Candidate List outside of CALPADS through use of a local automated or manual process. The resolved Candidate List, the Candidate List Response file, may then be uploaded to CALPADS for processing of the selected candidate records. This upload process is available only to authorized LEA users granted the appropriate user role by the local LEA Administrator.

After the Candidate List is resolved offline, the LEA creates the Candidate List Response file and uploads the file to CALPADS for processing. CALPADS will process the file and produce one of the following results:

• If errors exist, an error message is generated and the LEA is informed that changes are required 

• If no errors exist, CALPADS will update the disposition of each SSID request in the ODS

Candidate List Response File Content

The Candidate List Response file will contain the resolution of the candidates included in the original Candidate List extract file. The Candidate List Response file will be produced by the LEA. The Candidate List Response file must adhere to the following rules:

• The Candidate List Response file must contain all records included in the original extract file

• The records in the file do not have to be in any particular sequence

• One and only one Select Flag field may contain “Y” for each SSID request candidate list group (where the Request ID fields are the same value).

The content of the Candidate List Response file is listed in Table 42 below.
