An advisory committee made up of parents, teachers, staff, administrators, and community members met recently to review and provide input to the LCAP. The LCAP is the Local Control Accountability Plan that the state of California mandates all districts write every three years and report on progress annually. The state recognizes the need for local control for school districts to meet the needs of all students but requires each district to address the state’s 8 priorities of basic services, implementation of state standards, parent involvement, student achievement, student engagement, school climate, course access, and other student outcomes. The WCUSD’s LCAP meets the state’s eight priorities and also includes goals, actions, and expenditures for those actions. Sonia Gonzalez, Director of Special Projects, leads the meetings and makes sure our district goals align with the state’s goals. Mrs. Gonzalez states "the LCAP process allows us to gain important input from our community in regards to what our students need to excel academically.” Stakeholder input on the LCAP is a crucial component of the process to ensure the district is meeting the needs of the students represented in our community.
