You are receiving this as part of our annual Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) educational partner engagement process. We always make a concerted effort to involve our partners to the greatest extent possible and the annual LCAP Survey is one way we gain input from students, families, staff, and community members. The survey will be open for feedback until Friday, March 1st. Your voice matters and we hope you will take a few minutes to provide input on how our schools are meeting the needs of students and encourage others to do the same. The survey is anonymous, but the results and comments are reviewed and read by the LCAP Committee to support decision-making.
What is LCAP?
The state's revised funding structure, the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF), requires districts to annually approve a Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) with input from all educational partner groups. The LCAP document connects the district budget and spending to district goals and initiatives. Our engagement process includes an LCAP Advisory Committee, made up of six different educational partner groups - Classified staff, Certificated staff, Administrators, Parents, Students, and Community leaders/representatives. The committee meets for three full days during the Spring and is tasked to help measure our schools' progress, identify district priorities, and inform the development of the Local Control Accountability Plan. In addition to our LCAP committee meetings, our process includes a survey of all stakeholder groups and other engagement activities. The input from these channels is brought to the table and processed within our LCAP committee as well as by site and district leaders. The primary outcome of the process is to identify spending priorities based on the collective needs of the district.
