Facing an otherwise light agenda, Vacaville Unified trustees are expected to learn details about the district’s proposed Local Control Accountability Plan when the governing board meets tonight in Vacaville.
District administrators will present information about the LCAP, as it is called for short, which lays out what educators, governing boards, and teachers must do to educate students and how they are going to measure results.
A key part of Gov. Jerry Brown’s Local Control Funding Formula, LCAPs call for meetings with community stakeholders and give more power to school site leaders and governing boards as they seek to focus on student achievement for all and narrow the so-called “achievement gap,” the difference in standardized test outcomes between various ethnic groups.
