A Front-Row Seat to District Decision-Making
Apply now to join the LCAP Parent Advisory Committee
In 2013-14, the state of California changed the way it funds school districts.The new model, called the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF), allows districts more freedom in how funds are spent but also requires the development of a Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) that aligns spending to specific district goals for student achievement. One key aspect of the LCAP process is the engagement of parents/guardians and students — including homeless, 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, 2016. The committee meets about once a month from November through June. More detail is 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: Monday, October 31, 2016 at 5:00 p.m.Please note while we will maintain the privacy of personal identification information, answers to questions may be shared publicly.
