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 James D. Karle:

Community involvement is very important in the expendiature of the LCFF funds.  We have community meetings at local schools and use mailed information to inform our parents.  We have been using the funds to expand options and opportunities for our students.  New dollars have been spent to expand pre-school access, afterschool programs, early literacy programs, technology access and social emotional supports for our students.
