We need your help!

Each year I work with the Site Council to update our Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP). The LCAP is
required by the state for funding based on our local needs and the 8 State Priorities.

The state mandated "8 Priorities" are:
1. Basic Services such as: facilities, qualified teachers and instructional materials
2. Implementation of Academic Standards
3. Parent Involvement
4. Student Achievement
5. Student Engagement
6. School Climate
7. Course Access
8. Other Pupil Outcomes (decided locally)

Here’s where we need your help. We want to be sure we’re hitting our 8 Priorities. This survey is designed to help us understanding where our strengths are and where our weaknesses lie to allow the School Site Council, Staff, and
the School Board to create our goals and budget for the next school year.

Please use the Additional Comments at the end of the survey to add any thoughts you may have not addressed by the survey.  If there is something you would like a response to, please email me directly.

This year we also decided to incorporate some questions that will help guide our PTO.  We appreciate any feedback you can give.

Thank you for helping us make Dunham the best it can be!

Thank you for your time -

Christin Barkas
