Local Control Accountability Plan [Home]

The responsibility is on parents and communities to get much more involved in their schools and in their school budgets. We used to rely on the state to have regulations and auditors. Now we’re relying on community local action. I would turn the challenge over to parents and say, “You’ve got to get out there and get involved.”

– MICHAEL KIRST, PRESIDENT, CALIFORNIA STATE BOARD OF EDUCATION

 

Last year the State of California changed the way school districts are funded. Instead of telling districts how much money to spend on each part of the budget, the State is giving each district a lump sum to spend as they choose to best serve their students.  This new system is called the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF).

To make sure all students—especially low-income students, English learners and foster youth—will be served well by this new funding, each district must set goals and show growth in eight priority areas.  The goals and actions to achieve them must be created with input from community, parents, students and staff.  These goals and actions are called the Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP).  It will be updated every year.

The eight priority areas fall into three broad groups:


A. Conditions of Learning

  • Basics: good teachers, curriculum and facilities.
  • State Standards:  all education must meet state standards.
  • Course Access:  all students can take the courses they need.

B. Pupil Outcomes

  • Student Achievement: measured by how students score on standardized tests; how many learn English, pass the Advanced Placement tests and are prepared for college.
  • Other Student Outcomes: measured by how students do in their classes.

C. Engagement

  • Parent Involvement: parent input and participation.
  • Student Engagement: measured by attendance, dropout and graduation rates.
  • School Climate: measured by suspensions and expulsions, safety and connectedness.

As a student, parent, staff or community member, you can help influence the LCAP by:

Per Education Code 52060, 52066, 47605, 47605.5, and 47606.5

DJUSD Local Control Accountability Plan Goals 2016-17

 

Goal 1:  Develop, implement, and assess a Professional Growth System consistent with our mission and objectives, focusing first on social-emotional intelligence, differentiated instruction and inquiry-based learning.

 

Goal 2: Develop and implement a plan for physical space and technology infrastructure required to achieve our objectives and mission.

 

Goal 3: Develop and implement a district-wide assessment system aligned with the Common Core Standards to effectively analyze student performance data at more frequent intervals in order to improve instruction, close the achievement gap, and ensure that all students meet or exceed district standards.

 

Goal 4:  Develop and implement a system that enables each student to set and pursue academic, social, and personal goals. 

 

Goal 5: Increase the percent of English Learners that make adequate yearly progress and are reclassified as Fluent English Proficient within five years.

 

Goal 6:  Conduct a district-wide climate assessment to obtain base line climate data.  The school culture/climate tool will have particular focus on cultural attributes that correlate to success of student groups identified in the LCAP.

 

Goal 7:  Increase parent engagement through effective two-way communication to 1) communicate with families about school programs and student progress; 2) foster involvement of families at school; support academic learning at home; and 3) include families as knowledgeable participants in school decisions.

 

Goal 8:  Value each person responsible for the education of our students by recognizing their work in promoting a community of respect, trust, and inquiry-based practice.  Recognition will be embedded in collaborative practices, professional growth, and effective communication networks.
