About California County Superintendents
The California County Superintendents provides the organizational mechanism for the 58 County Superintendents of Schools to design and implement statewide programs to identify and promote quality cost-effective educational practices and services, and provide support to school districts in the areas of student services, curriculum and instructional services, fiscal accountability and business services, personnel services, and technology and telecommunications.
The Curriculum and Instruction Steering Committee (CISC) is a committee of the California County Superintendents. CISC initiates collaborative leadership with school districts, the California Department of Education, and other partners to ensure programs, practices, and services that support success for all students. The committee identifies statewide curriculum and staff development needs, provides a communication and implementation network for curriculum and professional development activities, and assists the CDE in adopting and implementing instructional materials and developing publications such as curriculum frameworks.
The annual CISC Leadership Symposium brings together over 1,000 educational leaders from throughout the State for three days of networking and learning about the latest shifts in education and models of innovative action..
