Please join us for this full day work session to support Alternative Education Campuses in the process for creating or revising an improvement plan that is responsive to the school mission/vision and student population.  This session is open to school and district leaders that want to dive into measures and disaggregating data aligned to the school mission, student population, and instructional design. Participants will have a structured work session to collaborate with each other and apply the concepts addressed in the session.  Participants will be able to identify a timeline for plan development that supports stakeholder engagement and allows for meaningful modifications to improvement efforts. Participants will have access to CDE staff expertise from multiple offices  in the development of their plan in meeting expectations and navigating the online UIP system.   By the end of the session, participants will be able to leave with a structure in place for their 2018-19 UIP.
