Next year, the district is looking at adopting new textbooks and curriculum in English Language Arts for all 6-8 students.

The adoption will go before the Board of Trustees for adoption at the May board meeting.
Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP)
As part of the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF), school districts, COEs, and charter schools are required to develop, adopt, and annually update a three-year Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP).
The LCAP must focus on eight areas identified as California’s educational priorities as well as its own local priorities. The eight areas of specified state priorities are intended to encompass the key ingredients of high-quality educational programs. The plan must describe the overall vision for students, annual goals and strategic actions needed to achieve the goals. In formulating the plan, each school district/county office must engage parents, employees, educators and the community in developing these plans.
The Plan must demonstrate how the budget ensures alignment of projected spending and services to support the achievement of the goals. Each year the plan must provide data on how well the plan meets the overall goals and the goals for each numerically significant student subgroup.
The following is the the timeline for 2016 LCAP approval:
May 10 - Board reviewed draft LCAP
May 23- The Site Council reviews the Draft Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP)
May 23-June 14 - A final draft is posted for public comment until the Special Board Meeting in June to approve the LCAP.
June 14 - Public Hearing regarding the LCAP and District Budget
June 21 The Board approves the LCAP
