School district residents will have the opportunity next month to learn more about the accountability plan being put in place for Escalon Unified.
In 2013, Governor Brown signed into law one of the most comprehensive educational reform laws California has ever experienced, said EUSD officials. This law significantly changed the school district planning process with the establishment of the Local Control Accountability Plan or LCAP. As part of this change, school districts are required to consult with their community and other stakeholders regarding school and district needs and programs as part of the planning process. For the last two years, Escalon Unified has held a series of Town Hall meetings for this purpose. This school year the district will again be holding a series of meetings to report on the implementation of this year’s LCAP and to consult with the community and other stakeholders with regard to school and district’s programs and needs.
Two meetings will be held to receive stakeholder input on the district’s needs and programs. The first of these meetings is scheduled for Wednesday, Feb. 3 from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. in the Dent Elementary School primary cafeteria. The second meeting will be held on Wednesdays, Feb. 10 from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. in the El Portal Multipurpose room.
“The district welcomes all community members to attend these meetings and hear about the various programs currently in place and to provide valuable input regarding the district’s needs and future direction,” said EUSD Assistant Superintendent Joel Johannsen.
