The ACI is a coalition whose members represent the full spectrum of the state, including teachers, administrators, parents, students, business, community advocates, school board members, researchers, philanthropy, institutions of higher education, and others. The ACI is committed to a vision for California of providing a high quality education for every student in every school and in every part of the state.
Currently focused on communications about the state’s new accountability system, including the California School Dashboard, the ACI puts all of the changes in California’s K-12 public education system into context to demonstrate how they all work together to help all students reach their full potential, no matter who they are, where they live, or what their circumstances.
To help educate parents and communities about the state’s remodeling of the K-12 public education system and the state’s new accountability system—including the California School Dashboard—the Alliance for Continuous Improvement developed a series of materials you can download, adapt and use with your community!
