Trustees of the Benicia Unified School District heard an update on the second goal for BUSD’s Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP), which includes modernizing instruction and infrastructure, at Thursday’s school board meeting.
The LCAP is a plan that is required by all public schools in California to receive funding provided through the Local Control Funding Formula, which was signed into law by Gov. Jerry Brown in 2013. The LCAP outlines three goals, the first of which is to create a team of engaged staff to support the success of all students so they are ready for college and careers. Ruben Fernandez, the director of technology, gave an overview on the second goal which was to “modernize and improve infrastructure to provide a learning environment that offers opportunities for 21st century teaching and learning.”
