What is the LCAP?

California's new school funding law, called the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) is a new way for schools to focus on student success. The LCFF requires all districts to involve parents in planning and decision making as well as in developing a Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP). The LCAP is a plan that guides our school in the development of educational programs, utilizes data to gauge how well the school is doing in meeting the state LCAP priorities and guides the District in implementing local priorities for our school.

Parent Feedback

When parents and families take an active role in their children's education both at home and in the community, children perform better in school and have a better chance of furthering their education.

Learn More - get engaged!

Each year we ask that parents provide feedback regarding the state and local priorities by completing a survey and attending a LCAP meeting.

Below is a link to the parent survey. It is available in English and Spanish.

If you would like to attend a meeting to learn about the LCAP process and provide your input, meetings are scheduled for:

  • March 16th at 6:30 PM
  • April 10th at 6:30 PM
  • April 19th at 8:30 AM

We want to know your priorities and ideas for improving our schools!

Child care will be provided for the evening meetings.
