Preguntas y Respuestas

Preguntas de 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?
Respuesta de Patricia S. Sinay:

Last year our district held 20 parent engagement sessions, four were facilitated by the Board and focused on updating parents on our Local Control and Accountability Plan and two were focused on getting input from families on the next year's LCAP. In addition, we presented at our District-level English Learner Advisory Committee meetings.  Though all parents were invited, these sessions were not as well attended as we had hoped.  In the coming year, we will use more on-line tools as well as face-to-face opportunities to seek feedback.

What is the most significant challenge facing the Encinitas Union School District, and if you are elected, what steps will you take to address it?
Respuesta de Patricia S. Sinay:

Over the past several years, our teachers have been very busy learning and implementing the new California Math and English Language Arts Standards.  From our most recent state test scores, we can see that the teachers have been successful in educating our students on the new curriculum.  We now are required to implement the Next Generation Science Standards.  Teachers have always been engaging students in science and now they have an opportunity to do so in a new way.  As with the other new standards, the district will need to assure that teachers are well trained in the curriculum and have the resources they need to assure student achievement. Because learning does not mirror the way we were taught (which is a good thing), the district will also need to inform families and the larger community on the best ways they can help our students succeed in science.
