Make your voice heard: Apply for one of 16 spots on SCUSD’s Local Control and Accountability Plan Parent Advisory Committee.

The Local Control and Accountability Plan — better known as LCAP — is a state-required document that aligns the spending of state funds to district goals and student achievement.

One key aspect of the LCAP’s development process is the engagement of families and students — including homeless students, foster youth and those from low-income and English learner communities — in providing input and feedback.

The LCAP Parent Advisory Committee will receive information which helps them to understand the rules as well as the goals, actions and services contained in the LCAP. Also, members provide insight and opinions for the Board of Education and the Superintendent to consider. Finally, committee members communicate with their community, share their knowledge about the LCAP and provide feedback to the district.

What is the commitment to this committee?

Sixteen members will be appointed by the Board of Education on October 20. The committee meets about once a month from November through June. (Further details are provided in the application.) Members will serve at least one year, but since the LCAP is a three-year plan, there are no term limits.

Parents, former parents, community members as well as SCUSD staff may apply. PAC members will reflect the demographics of the district.

Deadline to apply: Friday, September 30, at 5 p.m.

The application may be completed using this online form. Or you can print out the application in English or other languages here.
