The Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP), which requires schools and districts to describe goals and specific actions to achieve those goals for all students and subgroups in eight priorities (see below for more details about the priorities), must be updated yearly. The LCAP presents a unique opportunity to measure the factors that are important to produce a well-rounded education for all students. As part of our process, we are asking for feedback that will be utilized to assess our progress toward meeting our objectives. This opportunity affords stakeholders a voice in the way the district and our schools will hold themselves accountable.
Please answer the following questions to help our district determine what our stakeholders (e.g., students, parents, staff, and community members) find valuable in a school system. The results from this survey will be used to determine if we are meeting our growth targets, and will help monitor the implementation of our LCAP priorities. Your feedback is greatly appreciated and will be carefully considered. Some questions may not apply directly to you currently, but do apply to our school community. Please answer to the best of your ability.
The individual results from this survey will be kept confidential. We are asking that you include your school name so that we can keep track of this information by site. We would like to thank you in advance for taking your time to complete this survey.
Eight State Priorities for the LCAP:
Priority 1, Basic Services: Providing all students’ access to fully-credentialed teachers, instructional materials that align with state standards, and safe facilities.
Priority 2, Implementation of State Standards: Implementation of California’s academic standards, including the Common Core State Standards in English language arts and math, Next Generation Science Standards, English language development, history social science, visual and performing arts, health education and physical education standards.
Priority 3, Parent Involvement: Parent involvement and participation, so the local community is engaged in the decision-making process and the educational programs of students.
Priority 4, Student Achievement: Improving student achievement and outcomes along multiple measures, including test scores, English proficiency and college and career preparedness.
Priority 5, Pupil Engagement: Supporting student engagement, including whether students attend school or are chronically absent.
Priority 6, School Climate: Highlighting school climate and connectedness through a variety of factors, such as suspension and expulsion rates and other locally identified means.
Priority 7, Course Access: Ensuring all students have access to classes that prepare them for college and careers, regardless of what school they attend or where they live.
Priority 8, Other: Measuring other important student outcomes related to required areas of study, including physical education and the arts.
