Significant Disproportionality Process (CCEIS)
In 2019-20, the California Department of Education identified Alameda Unified School District as one of 120 districts across the state showing “significant disproportionality.”
Specifically, for three years in a row, African-American students in AUSD have been identified as children with disabilities and, specifically, with certain kinds of disabilities, at a higher rate than their peers of other races.
Because of this pattern of significant disproportionality, the CDE has mandated that AUSD:
Develop and submit a Comprehensive Coordinated Early Intervening Services (CCEIS) Plan
Convene a CCEIS Stakeholder Team
Develop a Special Education Plan
This page provides comprehensive information on AUSD's significant disproportionality and what it is doing to address it. That information includes AUSD communications to families, FAQs, Board of Education presentations, and resources from outside organizations.
