Development of the Strategic Plan
A few years ago, Trustees determined the need to set long-range goals and objectives for the District. The Board used a strategic planning process to create a course of action in three different goal areas. They also discussed the District’s beliefs about students and learning and, from these discussions, developed the vision and mission statement for the District.
The establishment of long-range objectives allows all District staff members to focus on the same goals for improving student achievement. In 2005-2006, the Board revised the District’s Vision Statement and Mission Statement as well as redefined the District’s Core Values. Parent surveys are used to give input to annual areas of focus.
Development of the Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP)
The Board of Trustees and District staff are working together to develop a three year LCAP. The LCAP will be presented on May 21, 2014 at a regularly scheduled meeting, with adoption taking place on June 18. The Board also discussed and presented their own ideas for a five year vision for the District. These ideas were shared out at the March 5th Board of Trustees meeting.

LOCAL CONTROL and ACCOUNTABILITY PLAN (LCAP)
As a critical component of the new Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) law, every school district must engage parents and the community to create a Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP). The LCAP is intended to be a comprehensive planning tool. Each school district's LCAP must focus on eight priority areas that help all students succeed. The Superintendent and Assistant Superintendent have held ten meetings in the community sharing the goals and receiving input from the community to assist the District in developing their LCAP.
LCAP Power Point Presentation
Measurable goals and activities will be aligned to the eight priority areas and District Budget. In preparation for the full implementation of the LCAP, transitional goals have been identified for the 2013-14 school year.
The goals are as follows:
1) Fully implement Common Core Math K-12
2) Improve attendance rates at each site by 2%
3) Implement year 1 of AVID
4) Revise the District Technology Plan and increase the use of technology in the classroom
5) Update the High School Graduation Requirements
