INSTRUCTION

California Common Core Standards (CCSS) 

California has joined a national movement to adopt common standards and assessments for English Language Arts and mathematics. Adopted in California in August 2010, the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) were developed to prepare K-12 students for college and career readiness. Benchmarked against inter- national standards and top-performing countries, the CCSS also help prepare our students to succeed in a global economy and society. These standards will help ensure that students are receiving a high quality education consistently, from school to school and state to state.

On January 29, 2014, Performance Martial Arts Center held a “Board Break-a-thon” in which students raised funds for the school districts where they attend school.  Central School District received a special donation of $566 due to the efforts of three students.  These students and their instructors were invited to the Board meeting to be introduced to the Board.

Local Control Accountability Plan
 

By July 1, 2014 and annually thereafter, all school districts in California must develop a Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) that aligns with their annual budget and identifies the actions they will take to meet state priorities pertaining to teacher qualifications, implementation of the Common Core State Standards, parental involvement, student achievement, student engagement, school climate, student access to a broad course of study and student outcomes.

 Last week the State Board of Education adopted the regulations for the LCAP and districts across California are now working to develop an understanding of the new funding formula requirements in order to make informed programmatic decisions about how they will provide increased and/or improved services to the targeted student groups which include low income students, English learners and foster youth. 

The development of the LCAP requires transparency and stakeholder engagement. In order for district staff to develop such a plan, consultation with school employees, parents, students and community members is necessary.  During the month of February more than 20 different Central School District stakeholder focus groups will meet with district staff to provide input as we develop our district LCAP. 

The final district budget and LCAP will be presented to the Board of Trustees for a first reading in May and approval at its June 12, 2014 meeting.
