• State Transformational
    Assistance Center (S-TAC)

    In order to build a cohesive statewide approach that eases the distinct impacts of COVID-19 on student learning, cognitive and social development, and emotional well-being, the California Department of Education (CDE) has launched an initiative called the California Community Schools Partnership Program (CCSPP). This initiative is designed to accelerate efforts across the state to reimagine community schools in ways that are aligned with the CCSPP Framework.

    The Alameda County Office of Education (ACOE) has been awarded a three-year contract by CDE to be a State Transformational Assistance Center (S-TAC) for CCSPP in partnership with the UCLA Center for Community Schooling, National Education Association (NEA) and Californians for Justice (CFJ). Together, all are working toward the improvement of schools using equity-enhancing strategies to align community resources with student needs.
