Beginning July 1, 2013, the State of California changed the funding formula for public education and requires school districts to develop a Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP).  The LCAP is a plan that aligns the eight (8) State priorities with the District’s education goals and financial resources. 

The goal of the parent/community planning process is to gather feedback on the design and implementation of the district’s priorities for the LCAP. Your participation is critical in this decision-making process and we appreciate your assistance with this survey.

If you would like more information before completing this survey, please view the video on the LCAP including the PowerPoint on implemented actions in the plan located on our District website.

All answers are anonymous and confidential.
