Districts and schools in California have switched to a new statewide assessment system. The assessments focus on California Common Core Standards and are administered through a computerized testing system developed by the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC). Learn about Common Core Standards and the SBAC assessment by visiting SELPA's Common Core/SBAC page or by visiting the SCOE SBAC page.
The Inventory of Services and Supports (ISS) for Students with Disabilities (SWDs) is designed to help districts examine their policies, procedures, and practices to gain a deeper understanding of why SWDs are not learning and why the district is not closing the achievement gap. The tool is designed to provide a framework for the District Leadership Team (DLT) to use that will enhance and deepen their understandings about this subgroup of students.
