Get involved: Help gather feedback on district priorities, resources
SCUSD gears up engagement efforts

e-Connections Post

SCUSD is looking for volunteers to help gather feedback on the district’s use of state resources.

The district is working to improve engagement and transparency in budget discussions in compliance with changes to funding and accountability rules set out by the new Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF).

In exchange for greater flexibility with state funds, the state now requires districts to develop a Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) with community input.

The LCAP is the way that school districts are expected to share data, needs, actions and anticipated outcomes that guide the use of available funding. At its core, the LCAP is designed to ensure that everyone has a voice in determining how funds can best support students.

SCUSD is seeking Public Education Volunteers to help to inform the community about this important work and get feedback on how to best allocate available resources to meet students’ needs. Volunteers will reach out to their personal/professional networks and guide them through the completion of a survey designed to gather input in the key areas laid out by the state.

If you are interested in participating, please call (916) 643-7924 or email: Sean-Alexander@scusd.edu to learn about the process. If you want to be involved but are unable to volunteer, take our online survey and stay informed at www.scusd.edu/LCAP.

In addition, the LCAP Advisory Committee will meet at 6 p.m. on February 13 at the Serna Center. The meeting is open to anyone interested in learning more about district goals and resources.
