Williams Settlement and monitoring update:
The CDE has provided new
FAQs for Williams Monitoring
for 2020-21. Based on the new FAQs, LACOE will collect instructional materials surveys from all teachers in the Williams cohort. The list of schools has not changed. It currently includes approximately 530 schools in 38 LA County school districts.
LACOE staff inspecting school facilities will adhere to County Public Health guidance at the time of the visit. Inspections can be done when students are not present.
To inform affected districts about how LACOE will conduct instructional materials and facilities monitoring this year, a virtual meeting is scheduled for July 22 at 11:00 am. LACOE's Williams team will notify district staff about the meeting and provide the online registration information.
Instructional day and minute requirements per SB 98:
The Education Trailer Bill (
) provides information regarding minimum instructional time requirements and guidelines for LEAs to follow in meeting those requirements.
Section 43501 provides the minimum daily instructional minutes for varied grade spans; however, the annual instructional minute requirements, both total and for Physical Education, are waived for 2020-21 per Section 43502 (d).
LEAs can meet the annual minimum instructional day requirement through a combination of in-person instruction and distance learning per Section 43502 (c) provided the distance learning program meets the specified requirements.
The length of the instructional day in 2020-21 must be established by the local governing board per Section 43504 (c). It also must meet the minimum requirements established above.
LACOE’s LCAP Unit will continue providing updates and technical assistance via weekly meetings. Please email
for registration and information.
