Overview of LCAP Process
Superintendent Message Spring 2015
Dear Parents and Community Members,
NMCUSD’s three-year strategic plan, the Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP), is in the first year of implementation. We will be completing the annual update report this spring to determine the level of success for the first year of implementation and to ensure that actions/activities address identified needs. The LCAP requires schools and the District to establish goals and actions that are measured annually to ensure students’ are achieving. The district’s funding must demonstrate a nexus between the actions and the improvement of services to students who are low income, English learners and/or foster youth within the LCAP.
Stakeholders (parents, students, community members, teachers, staff, administrators) provided input into the LCAP goals and actions during it’s development last spring by re-aligning all current and new funding to meet the State’s eight priorities for student learning. We are continuing to seek input as we revised the LCAP for the 15/16, 16/17 and 17/18 school years.
The LCAP Goals are based upon the State’s eight priorities which include: Basic Services, School Climate, Student Engagement, Parent Involvement, Access to Courses and Programs, Implementation of Common Core State Standards and 21st Century Learning Skills, Student Achievement, and Other Student Outcomes. Check out our video “Overview of the LCAP Process” along with a full version of the LCAP located here on our district website www.nmcusd.org.
LCAP timeline for Spring 2015:
