The LCAP is a critical part of the way the state of California funds school districts through the local control funding formula process (LCFF).  School districts receive additional funds based on the number of Low Income, English Learner and Foster Youth students that are enrolled within the district.  The state is allowing districts to work in partnership with the community to decide how best to use the funds.  We need your help as parents, educators, employees, students and the community in the planning process to determine how to allocate our resources to meet our districts vision and goals.  Please join and participate in one of our stakeholder meetings as we continue to develop and update our LCAP.

Have a great week!
