California has recently launched a significant change to how schools are funded. This new funding model uses a formula designed to provide more local control over spending. As a result, each district (in our case, each school) is required to create a Local Control and Accountability Plan often called the LCAP.
California’s new funding law addresses eight (8) areas. These areas are: student achievement, student engagement, other student outcomes, course access, school climate, basic services, parental involvement, and implementation of the Common Core State Standards. We invite you to engage with us throughout this process in envisioning what our community desires for our students.
As part of our schools' continuing effort to engage parent, guardian, and community input on the LCAP, the IEM Schools have developed this website to explain the new state law, post information as it becomes available, and gather feedback from you as our plan is created.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions. Thank you for being a part of our students' success!
