California Public schools are now funded under a model known as the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF). Under this new approach, Districts are required to develop a Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) to guide priorities in the budget development process. Essential to that process is providing opportunities for staff and community input.
In the budget construction and spending priorities, a District’s LCAP must address the eight (8) priority areas identified by the California Department of Education. The eight (8) focus areas include implementation of the Common Core State Standards, providing for adequate instructional materials and facilities, engaging parental involvement, targeting student achievement and engagement, ensuring a positive school climate, making sure access to core instruction as well as instruction designed to meet specialized needs for all students is provided.
Last year the community and staff provided input related to these 8 areas in the initial development of Central Union’s plan. This year, the survey will play a component in the continued refinement of the District’s plan. We welcome your input for the District.
