Technical assistance to schools as defined by the 1995 State Accountability Legislation is coordinated through the Accountability Roundtable and provided by the State Support Team. The LEA Support Roundtable is comprised of representatives from each section within the Instructional Services Division, and also includes representatives from the Office of Technology Initiatives, Career Technical Education Services, Teacher Education and Certification, and the Regional Inservice Center. Also represented on the Roundtable are members of the Southwest Educational Development Lab (SEDL) and SERVE. The LEA Support Roundtable receives guidance from the Deputy State Superintendent and each Director/Coordinator within the Division of Instructional Services. The mission of the LEA Support Roundtable is to provide a seamless system of technical assistance and support to schools in the areas of curriculum, instruction, fiscal responsibility, management, and leadership.
The State Support Team (SST) is comprised of the SDE Staff of the Instructional Services Division as well as the Alabama Math and Science Technology Initiative (AMSTI) Site Directors and Math and Science Specialists, Alabama Reading Initiative (ARI) Regional Partners and Regional Reading Coaches, Regional School Improvement Coaches and Peer Mentors. The SST provides technical assistance and support to all schools with focused assistance to LEAs and schools that do not make AYP.
