Parents and community members are invited to share their ideas about local educational priorities at the Poway Unified School District’s Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) Community Forum:
Monday, April 28, 2014
9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Poway Unified School District Office Community Room
15250 Avenue of Science, San Diego
The LCAP is part of a revolutionary change in the way the State of California allocates funding to local school districts. Under the new Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF), state funding for schools is designed to be more flexible, allowing for more local control over academic spending priorities.
For the past three months, we have been gathering feedback from a variety of groups in the District, including:
- District Advisory Committee (DAC),
- District English Language Advisory Committee (DELAC)
- Community members
- Certificated and classified employees
- District Directors
- K-12 Principals
This LCAP Community Forum is an opportunity for parents, community members and other stakeholders to review the first draft of our LCAP and provide us with feedback as we move forward with this process.
In order to prepare materials and activities, we kindly request an RSVP to the Community Forum to email@example.com by Thursday, April 24th.
In addition to this forum, community members can also provide input on the Superintendent’s Your Voice page found here - Your Voice.
Additional information about the LCFF and LCAP is available on the California Department of Education Website - Local Control Funding Formula.
I look forward to hearing from each of you.
Dr. John Collins
