Joseph Kerr Middle School LCAP 2014-2015

In June of 2013, Governor Jerry Brown signed into law one of the most significant changes to the way California’s school districts are funded. This new system – the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) – changes the way the State of California allocates funds to school districts. The LCFF provides base funding for all students as well as supplemental and concentration funding to support students from low income families, English Learners and foster youth. The LCFF went into effect as of July 1, 2013.

Under the new funding rules, school districts and individual schools are required to adopt a Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) that describes the actions, services and expenditures that support student growth. The LCAP clarifies how programs/services will be measurably improved in quantity or quality, proportionate to the increase in funding. It also requires the engagement of parents, staff, students and other stakeholders in the building of the LCAP. The LCAP is a three year plan that must be adopted by July 1, 2014, and updated each year.

Joseph Kerr Middle School is seeking input for our parent community regarding LCAP funding priorities.  Please review the attached DRAFT of our 2014 – 2015 LCAP plan and let us know your thoughts.  Please email Dawnelle Maffei, Principal before January 26, 2016.  If you would like to comment in person, please attend our upcoming School Site Council Meeting on January 26, 2014 at 3:20PM in our Library.

 Parents please be prepared to show your drivers license or other valid photo I.D. when picking your student up early from school or when visiting our campus. When students are released from school early they must be picked up by an adult who is listed as a parent, guardian or emergency contact unless other arrangements have been made with an administrator or the office staff.

 

Also, all visitors on campus will be required to enter through the administration office to sign in, have their identification verified and then they will receive a visitor sticker to enter campus.
