Dixon Unified leaders will hear a report on the school district’s Local Control Accountability Plan, or LCAP, when they meet tonight in open session in Dixon.
Mike Walbridge, assistant superintendent of educational services, will report on the plan’s first goal, its rollout and its monitoring.
A key part of Gov. Jerry Brown’s Local Control Funding Formula, LCAPs, as they are called for short, lay out in detail what educators, governing boards and teachers must do to educate students and how they are going to measure results.
Months in the making, the plans required community stakeholder meetings and give more power to school site leaders as they seeks to focus on student achievement for all and narrow the so-called “achievement gap,” the difference in standardized test outcomes between various ethnic groups.
