School Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA)

  • In accordance with Education Code 64001, districts shall assure that schools participating in programs funded through the state's consolidated application process and any other school program they choose to include, will develop a School Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA). The school site council is responsible for the development, annual review, and update of this plan. The content of the SPSA shall be aligned with goals for improving student achievement and address how funds will be used to improve academic performance. The evaluation of the effectiveness of the instructional program will be based on an analysis of verifiable student data and annual updates will reflect the appropriate modifications to the program.

    The Federal and State Education Programs plan writing unit in conjunction with the Los Angeles County Office of Education provides technical assistance to local districts to support the schools in developing a compliant and appropriate SPSA based on district, state and federal guidelines.

    Schools participate in the following plan writing processes:

    Targeted Assistance Schools (TAS)

    • New to Title I
    • Updating existing plans

    Schoolwide Programs (SWP)

    • Transition from TAS to SWP
    • Updating existing plans

    State-Identified Schools

    You must have an approved plan to expend funds.
