LCAP Input Meetings…
The Redwood City School District is hosting five Parent/Community information/input meetings to discuss the the Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) on:
Jan 31: General Parent/Community/Staff Stakeholder LCAP Meeting 6:00pm at the District Office Board Room.
Feb 2: Parents/Community Members/Staff Stakeholders from Garfield, Hoover, Selby Lane, and Fair Oaks, and Taft and in Spanish with English Translation at Hoover School MUB at 6:00pm.
Feb 6: DELAC Meeting 6:00 District Office Board Room.
Feb 7: Parents/Community Members/Staff from John Gill, Roosevelt, Hawes, Kennedy, MIT and John Gill in English with Spanish Translation at John Gill School at 6:30pm.
Feb 9: Parents/Community Members/Staff from Orion, Cloud, NSA, Clifford, Henry Ford, and in English with Spanish Translation at Orion School MUB at 6:00pm.

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. Questions? Please contact Wendy Kelly at wkelly@rcsdk8.net
