SMMUSD To Host Third LCAP Webinar This Tuesday Night:

The third in a series of webinars hosted by the Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District on the Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) is scheduled for Tuesday, Feb. 17, at 6 pm.

The topics that will be discussed for this webinar are school site conditions for learning and student achievement.

The District encourages parents, students, staff and community members to join in this webinar from the comfort of home or office to provide input to the district regarding future plans of various aspects of educational services and programs for students throughout the district.

To join in the webinar visit: https://smmusd.adobeconnect.com/lcap14-15 and sign in as a guest.

In 2013, the state of California adopted a new formula for funding public education called the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF). When fully implemented, the LCFF will allocate funds based on specific student needs and will allow maximum flexibility at a local level.

As part of the LCFF, school districts must develop, adopt, and annually update a three-year plan called The Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP).

The LCAP is to be written and developed with feedback and input from community stakeholder groups. Staff, parents and students will be asked to provide input on eight different components of the LCAP.

Stakeholders are invited to provide input into the LCAP revision by completing a post-webinar survey. The link to the survey can be found on the district’s website at: http://bit.ly/1KQCIRJ

The past two webinars can be found online:

“The input of our parents and community is extremely important to this process,” Terry Deloria, Assistant Superintendent of Educational Services said.
