Taking Center Stage – Act II

Single plan for student achievement

The purpose of the Single Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA) is to raise the academic performance of all students to the level of state achievement standards. California Education Code sections 41507, 41572, and 64001 and the federal No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) require each school to consolidate all school plans related to state and federal funding.

The California Department of Education has developed a planning guide and template for local educational agencies (LEAs) to meet the program requirements. Use of the SPSA Part I: A Guide for Developing the Single Plan for Student Achievement (DOC; New Feb-2013), California Department of Education, is entirely voluntary.
