LCAP Overview

California’s 2013-2014 Budget Act included landmark legislation that resulted in the largest overhaul in 40 years to the state’s funding for public schools.  As part of the State’s new funding system called Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF), all school districts are required to submit by June a Local Control Accountability (LCAP) plan that describes how districts intend to meet annual goals for all students, English learners, low-income students and foster youth.  Specifically, the plan must address local district priorities and the state’s eight priorities, which are:

  1. Basic Services such as access to fully-credentialed teachers instructional materials and safe facilities;
  2. Common Core State Standards implementation;
  3. Parent involvement so the local community is engaged in educational programs;
  4. Improving pupil achievement and outcomes;
  5. Supporting student engagement, including whether students attend school or are chronically absent;
  6. Highlighting school climate and connectedness through a variety of factors;
  7. Access and enrollment, ensuring that all students have access to classes that prepare them for college and careers regardless of what school they attend or where they live; and
  8. Other pupil outcomes.

The Placentia-Yorba Linda Unified School District firmly believes in the importance of seeking stakeholder input prior to writing the plan.  Annually in March and April, district staff meet with parents, educators and community groups to engage stakeholders in important conversations. After input is gathered, the initial draft of the plan is shared with the Board of Education and additional revisions are made.  The plan is due to the State by June each year.

Thank you for taking the time to learn more about the Local Control Accountability Plan. To learn more, please click on the resources posted on the right side of this page.

A draft of the LCAP for 2017-20 is included below as an attachment.

The State of California mandates vision and hearing screening for students in public school. The screening for your middle school will be conducted on Friday, February 17, 2017 by nurses. The exam consists of visual inspection of the eye, along with a test for acuity. Hearing testing consists of your child wearing headphones, where tones are presented, and your child will raise his/her hand.

Parents will be notified by mail if their child's vision or hearing screen shows a need for further medical evaluation. If you have any questions, call the Health Services Department at (714) 986-7170 and speak with a district nurse.

Should you decide that you DO NOT wish to have your child participate in the above screening; a written note by a parent/guardian will be required to be on file. Please give the note to the school's health clerk.

Thank you,

 

Health Services
