What is the LCAP?
As part of the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF), school districts are required to develop, adopt, and annually update a three-year Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP), beginning on July 1, 2014, using a template adopted by the California State Board of Education (SBE). The LCAP is required to identify annual goals, specific actions, and measure progress for student subgroups across multiple performance indicators, including student academic achievement, school climate, student access to a broad curriculum, and parent engagement. School districts and charter schools are required to obtain parent and public input in developing, revising and updating LCAPs.The academic priorities must be aligned to the district’s spending plan. The local governing board must first approve the LCAP before adopting the annual district budget. County superintendents must review school district LCAPs and ensure alignment of projected spending, services, and goals.
What a Talent Show!
Last night was our annual H.E.L.U.S. Talent Show and we have some very talented students! Thank you to all the students who had the courage and drive to audition and perform in front of their peers and families. A special thank you to the Gibson and Durn Families and of course Mr. Nosik for helping make this year’s talent show a success!
At last Tuesday’s School Board meeting, H.E.L.U.S. Trustees, Mr. Martinez, and representatives from Supervisor Antonovich’s office and the Los Angeles County Department of Parks and Recreation met to walk the District’s unused property and discuss its use as a community park. The District is committed to bringing a park to our community.
