LCAP Parent Survey

We are already actively planning for the 2020-2021 school year, and as always, your thoughts, ideas, and suggestions are critical in helping us continue to provide the best education and systems of support for your children. 

In October, we administered the California School Parent Survey to all of you, and we sincerely appreciate the feedback.  We received hundreds of responses, and this data, when considered alongside the corresponding student and staff surveys, really helps us identify areas of strength and opportunities for improvement.  This information directly influences the annual development of our Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP), which explains how we will utilize the funds our school district receives to meet the needs of our students.

In addition to the survey mentioned above, we have also put together two open-ended questions. These questions will allow us to pinpoint specific programs and activities that are serving your children well and areas where we can improve which will help shape our 2020-2021 LCAP. If you have multiple students and specific comments for each, please fill out this survey for each student so you have an opportunity to provide more accurate information.
In June of 2013 a new era of school finance in California was signed into law by Governor Jerry Brown. The new funding model is known as the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF). It reshapes school funding, with the promise of additional funding (trying to recapture the level of 2007-08), and squarely aimed to improve achievement for all students. LCFF, and its local accountability counterpart, the Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) are anchored by the notion that California must do better for its underperforming students, who in fact make up a sizable portion of the state’s school-age population. The LCFF significantly changes the funding formula for school districts — more money is attached to students who are underperforming. The LCFF identifies three categories of students requiring greater resources: Student who qualify for free or reduced priced meals, Students who are English Learners, and Foster youth.
The additional need-based revenue to the Rescue Union School District will be minimal due to a low percentage of students in the above three categories. School districts must create a Local Control and Accountability Plan to spend the increased money. According to the projections used by Governor Brown to create the plan, school district funding will rise in increments over the next seven years.
