Williams Settlement

Williams Settlement

Williams v. State of California is a statewide class action suit regarding sufficiency of instructional materials, adequacy of facilities and the qualification of teachers. During September 2004, the Williams Settlement Legislation was signed into law to help ensure that all districts within the State of California uphold the state's duty to provide sufficient instructional materials in core subject areas; maintain clean, safe facilities in good repair; and take measures to guarantee all pupils have qualified teachers.


Requirements of the legislation affect all schools in the district. In addition, district schools identified as decile 1-3 based on the Academic Performance Index (API)  in 2013 are subject to an additional requirement in the form of an annual visit by the San Diego County Office of Education (the "County" or "SDCOE"). The purpose of the annual visits is to verify the sufficiency of instructional materials, condition of facilities, and information reported on the School Accountability Report Card (SARC).
