Local residents will have the opportunity to voice their opinions and offer input on local educational programs next week.
In 2013, Governor Brown signed one of the most comprehensive educational reform laws California has ever experienced. This law established the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) and also instituted the Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP). The LCAP has changed the way school districts approach their planning process as school districts are now required to consult with their community and other stakeholders regarding district needs and programs.
For the last several years, Escalon Unified School District has held annual Town Hall meetings as a means to seek community input. This year the district will again be holding a ‘Town Hall’ meeting to report on the implementation of the current LCAP and consult with the community and other stakeholders regarding district programs and needs. This year’s meeting will be held in the Escalon High School cafeteria on Wednesday, March 7. The meeting will be held from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
The district welcomes all community members to attend this meeting to provide input on the district’s current and future direction. If you are unable to attend you can still provide your feedback by completing the LCAP parent survey. The link to the survey is located on the district’s webpage – www.escalonusd.org.
