Project Description

Alliance for Continuous Improvement

The Alliance for Continuous Improvement (ACI) is the next step in the Superintendent’s Task Force on Accountability and Continuous Improvement, which made a set of recommendations for the State’s new accountability system in the report Preparing All Students for College, Career, Life, and Leadership in the 21st Century. The ACI is similarly comprised of state education associations and advocacy organizations.

Currently focused on communications around the California School Dashboard, the ACI puts all the changes in California’s 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.
