Transcript

  • 1. Community Involvement in LCFF Implementation PARENTS, STUDENTS AND COMMUNITIES MUST ENSURE LCFF IS EQUITABLY IMPLEMENTED FOR ADDITIONAL FUNDS TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE FOR STUDENTS
  • 2. Ana Matosantos, Director of Finance “The law is very clear that the dollars that are being provided through supplemental and concentration grants have to be spent on supplemental services for the students for which they are being provided.”
  • 3. Local Control & Accountability Plans  LCAPs are 3 year district plans to ensure spending aligns with a broader definition of school success, otherwise known as LCFF “State Priorities”  State Board of Education will adopt an LCAP template by March 31, 2014  Districts must adopt their first LCAP by July 1, 2014  Like the proportionality requirement, LCAPs are a limit on districts’ flexibility.
  • 4. State Priority Highlights  Priority #3: Parental involvement, including:  Efforts districts will make to seek all parents’ input in making decisions for individual schools and the district as a whole, and  How districts will promote parental participation in programs for disadvantaged students and students with exceptional needs.  Priority #5: Pupil Engagement, as measured by  Attendance, absenteeism, dropout, and graduation rates.  Priority #6: School climate, as measured by  Suspension/expulsion rates and “other local measures, including surveys of pupils, parents, and teachers on the sense of safety and school connectedness.”
  • 5. LCAP provides an opportunity for a strong vision for Community Involvement  Students, families, and communities are supported as they share responsibility for every student becoming college and career ready.  Participation in learning, leadership, and advocacy is expanded so individual students and entire schools make high levels of academic achievement. HOW: 1. Build capacity of all stakeholders 2. Set standards and goals for meaningful engagement, through community organizing 3. NOW!
  • 6. LCFF Community Involvement Requirements  District Level Committees:  Parent Advisory Committee  English Learner Advisory Committee  LCFF does not eliminate School Site Councils or English Learner Advisory Committees  LCAP’s must be consistent with SSC plans
  • 7. Community Voice in Creating LCAP  Written Comments from community  Public Hearing and meeting for LCAP, with the budget  Publish LCAP online  File complaints
  • 8. Protect Equity!  State Board of Education Meeting in Sacramento, November 7th, 8 am!  California Department of Education, N Street  Only meeting before SBE adopts important regulations about what “services…in proportion to the increase in funds” means.  Parent & Student Voices are ESSENTIAL.  CFJ is organizing a strong community presence.
