Local Control and Accountability Plan Approved by Board of Education

The Board of Education approved the Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) at the June 16, 2014 Board of Education meeting.     

Approved LCAP:

The Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) is a new state requirement as part of the historic new Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF).  The LCAP describes our goals, and how we plan to improve student outcomes over the next three years. 

In order to complete the LCAP, we engaged a variety of stakeholders, including our Board of Education, local interest groups, staff, community leaders, students and parents.  We held 14 meetings January through March, and posted a survey online to solicit feedback.  All feedback is available on the LCFF page. 

We wrote the LCAP using the feedback gathered from the meetings and the approximately 160 survey responses. Staff presented the LCAP draft to the Parent Advisory Group (comprised of the District Advisory Committee (DAC) and the District English Learner Advisory Committee (DELAC)) on April 15, and used their feedback to update the draft.  The last step prior to Board of Education approval was a public hearing and review of the draft at the May 19 Board of Education meeting. 

To provide information on how our students are currently performing, we designed data dashboards for our high school (9-12) and elementary (K-8) students that reflect important data points.

What an exciting start to the new calendar year! As you may have heard, Governor Brown's 2014-2015 proposed budget keeps his promise to increase school funding. This is great news for public education.

It promises to be a busy spring as we prepare our students, teachers and schools for the new Smarter Balanced Assessments and engage the community in our Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) discussions. For more information on the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) and the LCAP, click here.

These are exciting times for Modesto City Schools. In keeping with our 3C's, we look forward to continually enhancing our communication efforts, expanding collaboration among teachers, staff and the community, and celebrating our students, staff and volunteers for their amazing accomplishments and contributions.
