Dear San Gabriel Parents and Families,
The State of California requires that school districts develop a Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP). The LCAP is a critical part of the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF), which requires school districts to gather input from students, teachers, parents, community members, and public agencies to determine the goals, actions, and budget priorities for the district. Data from the California Dashboard must be used to determine funding priorities, which are based on eight State priorities. These areas are:
- Basic Services: Providing all students access to fully credentialed teachers, instructional materials that align with state standards, and safe facilities.
- Implementation of California’s Academic Standards: This includes English Language Arts, Mathematics, Next Generation Science Standards, English Language Development, History Social Science, Visual and Performing Arts, Health Education and Physical Education standards.
- Parent Engagement: Parents engaged in the decision-making process and the educational programs of students.
- Student Achievement: Improving student achievement and outcomes along multiple measures, including test scores, English proficiency and college and career preparedness.
- Student Engagement: This includes student attendance and chronic absenteeism.
- School Climate: Measuring effectiveness in building school climate and connectedness through a variety of factors, such as suspension and expulsion rates and other locally identified means.
- Course Access: Ensuring all students have access to classes that prepare them for college and careers.
- Other Student Outcomes: Measuring other important student outcomes related to District goals.
