It’s back-to-school time, and the first meeting agenda of 2014-15 for the Benicia Unified School District Board of Trustees reflects that reality.
As part of Thursday’s full agenda, the board will discuss multiple issues, from the final version of the Local Control Accountability Plan to a plan to provide for the district’s water needs by digging wells.
After months of input, workshops, planning, meetings and a public hearing, the LCAP was approved on a 4-0 vote with Trustee Andre Stewart absent at trustees’ final meeting of the 2013-14 school year in June.
The LCAP is part of the BUSD budget process and includes three sections: student outcomes, student and parent engagement, and conditions of learning. It is required to be in place for the district to receive state Local Control Funding Formula LCCF funding.
