The Las Virgenes Unified School District will host two community forums which will address California’s new educational planning process for public schools.
The Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) is tied to the state’s new funding formula and it requires districts to reach out to the community and its various stakeholders for input in assessing and planning for the specific needs of the district’s students.
In addition to focusing on the local needs of LVUSD’s students, the LCAP requires that eight state-mandated “priority areas” also be addressed. The state has identified the following priorities:
- Basic necessities
- Implementation of state standards
- Access to courses
- Student achievement
- Other student outcomes
- Parent participation
- Student engagement
- School climate
Las Virgenes Unified convened an LCAP Advisory Committee composed of representatives of different district stakeholders and student subgroups. The committee has made plan recommendations based on the review of student performance data and parent and staff survey results.
Administrators will share these recommendations with the public in the upcoming community forums. The community is invited to attend and participate in the discussion
Tuesday, May 13, from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at Lindero Canyon Middle School (multipurpose room, 5844 Larboard Lane, Agoura Hills)
Wednesday, May 14 from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., A. C. Stelle Middle School (mulitpurpose room, 22450 Mulholland Highway, Calabasas)
“Las Virgenes is a high-performing district where student achievement and community involvement have always been a priority," said Superintendent Daniel Stepenosky.
"Nevertheless, we continue to look for ways to improve student performance and experience and we welcome input from the community. We hope to have great participation at our LCAP Community Forums.”
