Our Purpose

Seeds of Partnership provides assistance on behalf of the California Department of Education (CDE) to support the direction, initiatives and focused goals related to requirements of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), federal reporting/monitoring activities, State Performance Plan (SPP) and Results Driven Accountability initiatives. A mainstay of the project focus is on parent and family engagement in education.

We aim to create or provide avenues and tools to increase improvement of partnerships. Initiatives we are involved with include audiences such as Special Education Division Consultants, LEAs, SELPAs, administrators, staff and families involved in programs for children with disabilities. We invite you to explore the pages of this site to learn more about family engagement and professional development resources. We encourage you to share how you have used the tools as an individual or as a team using our share your ideas comment form.
