State Performance Plan Technical Assistance (SPP-TA) Project
Napa County Office of Education
The SPP-TA Project provides technical assistance consisting of training, coaching, information dissemination, and referrals of best practices. The SPP-TA Project facilitates and provides three levels of technical assistance.
Primary Level work provides universal preventative efforts to assist all LEAs and schools to provide services through high quality and statutorily compliant programs. SPP-TA Project staff will make available, on a regular basis to the general public, accessible information on best practices around specific disproportionality SPP Indicators.
Secondary Level work involves targeted interventions and strategies to LEAs. SPP-TA Project staff will provide information on best practices, targeted interventions, and strategies to targeted LEAs. Targeted LEAs may be in an early/at-risk category, corrective action, or concerned about a disproportionality State Performance Plan Indicator. Project staff will respond to inquiries from LEAs and Technical Assistance (TA) Facilitators to provide them with information and cost/no cost resources to address their specific situation.
Tertiary Level service targets specific LEAs in need of assistance identified by (1) disproportionate representation and (2) finding(s) of non-compliance. SPP-TA Project staff will (1) design a series of symposiums to support tertiary level California Department of Education grantees; (2) assist LEAs in the identification and selection of TA Facilitators to best match the needs, characteristics, and geographic location of the LEAs; (3) provide the opportunity for enhanced sharing of knowledge and resources among TA Facilitators through the design and facilitation of a Professional Learning Network of TA Facilitators; and (4) design and facilitate a Community of Practice (CoP) for all SPP Facilitated Review grantees. The CoP is primarily focused on site-to-site interaction, sharing resources, and promising practices. Action research-based formative evaluation processes will be infused into this work.
