LCAP Survey

California’s 2013-14 Budget Act included landmark legislation that greatly simplifies the state’s school finance system.  This major change comes with state mandates for new accountability measures that include the development of a Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) that requires parent and community input prior to adoption. District staff members are in the process of developing a comprehensive implementation plan that aims to provide a clear framework for EGUSD schools to follow. This plan would strive to connect resources to goals and accountability for performance expectations in a transparent and seamless process, and align with the new LCAP requirements.  The meaningful engagement of stakeholders in the LCAP process is a cornerstone of the legislation as well as a significant area of focus by advocacy groups across the state, and most importantly – it is a proven way of continuously improving educational services for kids and families. 

 To this end, we are asking you to take a few minutes to complete the attached survey (Electronic or Hardcopy) by January 12, 2018.  Your input is critical to the creation of our site based LCAP plan which we use as a road map to determine how money and resources are applied to our students and programs here at JKMS. 

 Thank you in advance for offering your honest feedback as we will use it to inform our programs and best practices here at Kerr for the benefit of our students and staff.
