In December 2016, ACSA established an Accountability Task Force whose role was to support the successful implementation of the state’s accountability and continuous improvement system, and to better inform the work of state agencies based on practitioners’ experiences and perspectives. The Task Force is comprised of approximately 20 members representative of California’s regions and the different administrator roles, including principals, directors and assistant superintendents, superintendents, and county office of education officials with expertise in all aspects of the local, state and federal programs and knowledge of each of the state performance indicators. Over the past three years, the Task Force has met to review and discuss agenda items coming before the California State Board of Education, and to help inform ACSA’s position on key policy and implementation issues.
