AEC Selection of Measures Collection

The CSI accountability team will manage this collection component. For questions or support, please email

Alternative Education Campuses (AECs) have a specialized School Performance Framework (SPF). As part of this specialized SPF, AECs are allowed to submit optional measures based on local data. This collection is the method by which AECs can submit their approved optional measure data to be reported in their AEC SPF (see State Board of Education Rules 1 CCR 301-57 for specific guidance on this policy).

CDE has a resource outlining Policy Guidance regarding Accountability for Alternative Education Campuses.
