Travis Unified leaders, when they meet Tuesday night in Fairfield, are expected to approve plans for student achievement, four new course proposals, and new builder development fees.
There are federal and state requirements for all schools to develop a Single Plan for Student Achievement, or SPSA, the school’s plan for closing the achievement gap, or the disparity between the academic performance of ethnic minorities and whites, especially on standardized tests.
The SPSA is aligned with the district’s Local Control Accountability Plan, or LCAP, according to agenda documents.
The school district administration, staff and site councils have prepared these plans based on student needs, setting aside resources to help close the performance gap for low-achieving students, Sue Brothers, assistant superintendent for educational services, noted in the agenda.
