The Escalon Unified School District will be hosting a District planning meeting in the Escalon High School cafeteria on Wednesday, March 6 beginning at 6 p.m.
The meeting is open to all students, parents, and community stakeholders. Each year the district is required to review and update their Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP). To assist in developing the plan, EUSD is requesting community input and feedback about their schools, programs and operations as these areas relate to the eight key priority areas defined by the state. These priorities include parent involvement, student preparation and performance, school climate and student engagement.
The LCAP was part of the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) legislation enacted in 2013 with the purpose of giving school districts greater local control. As part of the LCAP process the state identified eight key priority areas that must be addressed within the goals of each district’s LCAP. For each goal, districts are required to identify specific actions and services and the corresponding budgetary allocation which will be implemented in support of that goal. Each year as part of the LCAP review process districts must review these actions and services and provide an accounting of how the allocated funds were spent.
At the District planning meeting on March 6, District officials will review its three goals, as well as their related actions and services. For each goal and the annual update, facilitators will share progress, challenges and supporting data with the community and provide the opportunity for participants to provide input and feedback. This information will then be included in the LCAP review process and update.
