State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson today announced a new online survey to improve local educational agencies’ three-year plans to improve student achievement.
Knows as Local Control and Accountability Plans (LCAPs), these are key tools for establishing goals to improve student outcomes and to align spending decisions with those goals.
The survey will let anyone who is interested – students, parents, educators, community members and others – help make the plans easier to use, understand, and review. The survey will be open until 5 p.m. March 25, Torlakson announced at the State Board of Education’s (SBE) March meeting. The SBE will be considering input from stakeholders about how to improve the LCAP template this fall.
“The LCAPs should allow everyone to find out how well their local school district is doing,” Torlakson said. “The system is new and still evolving. Please use the survey and we can work together to make the system better.”
