Questions & Answers

Questions from League of Women Voters of California Education Fund (1)

A recent law made major changes in the way that the state allocates funding to schools.  What will you do to ensure that the public understands your local control formula for school spending and your plan to measure outcomes?
Answer from Tori Anderson:

Since I have attended the LCAP committee meetings as the Parent representative for my school site for the past 2 years I have already been a part of working with fellow Parents, Teachers, Administrators and Board members on establishing the goals as well as the measures to determine that we are meeting the goals outlined in the LCAP. I have been active in in helping to provide ideas and input into what services are offered to students under those goals and how the services will benefit the students. To help ensure that the public understands the LCAP I would encourage them to come to the meetings to learn what goes into developing and implementing the LCAP, where the money comes from and how it is designated in use. I would recommend the district provide informational nights to invite our community stake holders for questions and answer sessions or trainings on what the LCAP is and how it works.
