Under the Local Control Funding Formula, enacted as part of the 2013-14 State Budget, school districts must annually develop and approve a Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP). The LCAP describes the District’s goals, actions and services, budget and expenditure information and how LCFF funding will be used to support all students, and specifically those students who qualify for English learning, free and reduced lunch and foster youth.
The State Board of Education established eight "State Priorities" in guiding school districts in developing their LCAP goals, actions, and services. The State Priorities are:
1. Basic Services: Providing all students access to fully credentialed teachers, instructional materials that align with state standards, and safe facilities.
2. Implementation of State Standards: Implementation of California’s academic standards, including the Common Core State Standards in English language arts and math, Next Generation Science Standards, English language development, history-social science, visual and performing arts, health education, and physical education standards.
3. Parental Involvement: Parent involvement and participation, so the local community is engaged in the decision-making process and the educational programs of students.
4. Student Achievement: Improving student achievement and outcomes along multiple measures, including test scores, English proficiency and college and career preparedness.
5. Student Engagement: Supporting student engagement, including whether students attend school or are chronically absent.
6. School Climate: Highlighting school climate and connectedness through a variety of factors, such as suspension and expulsion rates and other locally identified means.
7. Course Access: Ensuring all students have access to classes that prepare them for college and careers, regardless of what school they attend or where they live.
8. Other Student Outcomes: Measuring other important student outcomes related to required areas of study, including physical education, and the arts.
In addition to the State Priorities, school districts may identify and incorporate local priorities in their LCAP plans. The LCAP development process provides opportunities for parents, teachers, staff, students, and the community to provide input and feedback.
The San Marino Unified School District Governing Board established the LCAP Parent Advisory Committee to provide for meaningful engagement of parents and other stakeholders in the District's LCAP development and update process. The LCAP Parent Advisory Committee represents all school sites, including students qualifying for free and reduced-price meals, English learners, and foster youth.
The role of the LCAP Parent Advisory Committee (PAC) is to consult, review and comment on the District’s draft Local Control Accountability Plan.
On May 2, 2016, a survey was sent to all LCAP Parent Advisory Committee members to provide their feedback.
