A message from Dr. Ellen Dougherty, Superintendent
LCAP Planning and Elementary and Middle School Open Houses
As May approaches, we have been reflecting on our 2014-15 LCAP (Local Control and Accountability Plan), which holds us accountable for our yearly budget. We have spent the funds the way the plan intended – 3 new social workers, 2 English language support teachers, full day kindergarten, reduced class size TK-2, technology support teachers in the middle schools, more hours for library clerks, office support, and health clerks, just to name a few!
We have now gathered achievement data and input from all sites at our monthly District English Learner Advisory Committee, District Parent Advisory Committee, School Site Council Meetings and various other stakeholder meetings. We are now revising the 2015-16 LCAP and augmenting it with even more new and improved services for our students based on the student data and stakeholder input. The newly revised plan will be presented at a Public Meeting at the June 9th Board Meeting and the Board will vote on the adoption of the plan on June 23rd.
Open Houses are coming up in May. Our two Middle Schools will be hosting their Open Houses on May 20th at 6:00 PM and the Elementary Schools the following evening, May 21st. You are most welcome to visit our schools and see the evidence of this whole year of learning!
